Mind is an emergent property or mind influences brain

The test- if the mind is an emergent property then brain produces mind . If not, mind produces brain. To test these alternatives is extremely difficult. If mind emerges from a complex brain,then decrease in complexity of brain structure should, decrease complexity of mental properties. If this is not the case it should not.
If mind influences the brain it should be able to override/decrease the negative impact of  brain defects.
Whichever study has greater statistical power should be the case.
