The brain control the heart but if you did not have the heart what would pump the blood?


V
heart

Obviously, you can't live without either. I'd say the brain wins though because without your brain, you aren't yourself anymore. Besides being the boss of your whole body, it stores all of your memories.

Good question.
Here's the deal:
Your brain controls your body right? So everything from breathing to peeing (both essential) would cease...EXCEPT FOR your heartbeat.
Your heart can function, and does function, completely independently of your brain, that's why brain dead people who can't even breathe for themselves have heart beats.
However, for your brain to work, it needs the heart to pump blood, oxygen, and glucose through.
So, basically, without the heart your brain dies, without the brain the rest of your body dies.
You can't trade off either one.

Brain tells the heart what to do.

You can't live without either.
And neither will function without the other.

equally important.

Both. You need your heart to pump the blood to your brain. You need your brain to tell your heart to pump the blood.
Without your brain your a mindless zombie- a bowl of jelly.
It's a cycle. Take one thing out, the whole system crashes.......

I need both to function in this world!


SusanS, Incognito
Well, you can't live without either, but I would say the heart because if it doesn't pump blood to the brain, a person wouldn't be alive. It is hard to say what organ is more important than the other because they are all needed and needed to work in concert with one another.


Travis
Brain functions the heart, but without heart the brain doesn't work. I'd say you could live longer with no heart.


Champagne
Brain for me.
