What is mind; what is brain?

Question : (Unedited)
Would you kindly give me a 'working definition' of  the difference between the mind and the brain.
Thanking you in advance.

Hi M...,

In simple computer terms, CPU will be the "brain"; while the electric current will be the "mind".  The operating system will be the "storehouse of consciousness" or accumulated past actions (past kamma).  The data input will be the "present actions generated" or fresh kamma.  

The "brain" is that part of visible "gray matter" inside the skull. The thoughts, feelings and perceptions are the invisible consciousness of the mind.

The above are my personal interpretations.  You are therefore free to disagree if need be.
