OK, enough of the fun, a brake bridge is the tube or plate that a caliper brake attaches to. Like the last guy said, you might be referring to a brake booster, which is a flex-fighter shaped like a horse shoe that goes on top of cantilever/v/u brakes to resist the spread of the rear triangle when using brakes that have studs welded to the frame.

They're exactly the same, only different.
