On the basis of a recent physical theory of many-body problems developped in our Institute, a model of the brain is formulated, and it is shown how some of its typical features, such as learning and memory processes, find therein a natural and simple explanation. In the Appendix a short surview of the necessary mathematical formalism is finally given.
