Brain controls the mind. Think about it, when you're sleeping (unconscious) or in a coma or something.. your brain is still functioning, and mind = consciousness

Another example is involuntary actions, such as breathing and blinking. If your mind (mind = thoughts, emotions, etc) controlled your brain you would have to think about breathing or blinking before doing it

Very good question. So far I believe that because we are capable of looking at our brain as an instrument rather then ourselves, the mind is in control.
I have more research to do before concluding this.

La Stupide makes an excellent point, but i'd have to side with Allimar on this. the mind is more like ourselves. a mix of spirit AND brain. because it yelds the properties of both i'd have to say that the mind is in control and that the brain is more of a tool. same as the heart, lungs, hands and feat. all just tools which we use to shape our destiny.

thats a good point but did you ever think that you might already think about it but only for like a nanosecond?
