The brain is made of atoms and it is the behavior of atoms and molecules that forms the basis of the functioning of the brain and our mind. Neurophysics is the study of how the collection of atoms that forms the nervous system works and results in information processing such as pattern recognition, perception, memory, intentionality, and consciousness.
