Please answer the following question

Throughout history, both scientists and non-scientists have struggled with the concept of mind. It has been a constant source of bewilderment whether the mind is in fact a dimension of the brain, or whether these two entities are separate. René Descartes (1596-1650) believed that the nonmaterial mind intervened in the operations of the brain. Material monists insist that the brain is a machine, and its operation accounts for mind. Dualists, on the contrary, took their stand with Descartes and insisted that a two-way interaction operated between mind and brain.
