Neurons-Glia Duality
Human brain consists of neurons as well as glial cells. In fact, there are more glial cells than neurons. Glial cells support the neurons physically and biochemically, helping the neurons to make connections during development of the embryo, supplying them with nutrients, etc., while neurons carry out the so called mental tasks. This is an astounding case of a mind-body duality right at the cellular level!
