Human Anatomy, Physiology, and Medicine. Anything human!
Ask this question yourself. What is your answer?
A. 'I/myself'.? If So, What does 'I' mean in science? ( 'I' is not an Organ or something..right?)
Can Science explain 'What Controls Brain?'
Or we should leave that question to God..?
Simple: The brain controls itself. It's just like ruling a country. The parlament makes decisions about the country. But who makes decisions about them? They do.

You're mixing science and phylosophy. You won't get anywhere that way. The brain consists of a complex network of interrelated cells, capable of autoregulation.
I think souls exist, but like Andrew said, you're mixing science and philosophy. They are not one and the same. The brain controls itself, and the soul is a different thing altogether.

Who says reason for world war IV will be Petrol?
Reason lies in two words "Me and Mine".
That's why human is included to animal, because basically we have similar characteristics to them. Simple example is that chimp has 98% of our genes. However, human can be called as "special" animal because we have soul, feeling, and shame. That could be the rest 2%.
Biologically, "I" means "cell".
Phylosophically, "I" means "not you".
My point of view, as a Physiologist and Biochemist, to this topic is based on the fact that the human body is very dynamic, self-regulatory and self-directory. Whenever there is an inbalance in the physico- chemical constitution, as well as the biological/valeological stbility of the human internal enviroment, a group of cells, tissues, organs, and even systems come together as a temporary anatomical unit to return the lost homeostatic balance to normal. It is this homeostatic co-operation that conrols (to some extent) the activities of the brain.
What controls the brain (to greater extent) is the interplay of the stimulatory and inhibitory neurons present in the brain. This is done when situations go beyond normal, as discussed above. Let's cross fingers.
QFT - Well said abbassido.
I would add to this discussion that: The brain is not necessarily in complete control of our bodies, in that we have peripheral nervous systems, and lack conscious control over many aspects of our physiological functions.
