Technically, you´re right and incorrect at the same time. The brain is so complex that some things that require thinking does not require thinking like you said, however, it just depends on the type of thought. Because, sometimes, when you have to think about specific things you are practicing mental activity because not everything you think about is a recollection. You have to use your mind to think and figure out what you need to or how to solve a problem or complete a task. Most things will cause you to exercise your brain because if not, you would not be able to think about doing things or utilizing certain parts of your brain. Both sides of your brain will require you to practice mental activity because you may not know certain things off hand or how to do everything. Whether it´s art or logical thinking, you will have to imagine what do you want to do or how will you solve this problem. And, your brain does control sensations and emotions because there are so many nerves in the brain that it ticks off certain areas in your body.
