# What is mental process?

Wikiquote has defined it as "the things that an individual can do with their mind".

It defines mind as "collective aspects of consciousness".But according to Wikipedia"consciousness is one of the task performed by mind".The definition of mind as far as I seen is not satisfactory for me. So , can mental process be explained without involving usage of the term mind( also saying it as collection of some cognitive activities), if so mind is properly defined before. I want a standalone definition for mental process without involving terms whose definition is explained by mental process or mind.
