René Descartes , who dedicated much time to the study of the pineal gland, called it the "Seat of the Soul". He believed that it was the point of connection between the intellect and the body. The Pineal Gland is a cone-shaped pea that sits on the roof of the 3rd ventricle of the brain, directly behind the root of the nose ( 3rd eye chakra ) floating in a small lake of cerebrospinal fluid. It is our body's biological clock and has been called a window of the brain because, as with all mid-line structures bordering the 3rd and 4th ventricles of the brain, it doesn't have a blood-brain barrier. Instead it relies on a constant supply of blood via, considering its miniscule size, a particularly rich vascular network.
