Welcome to Apple Communities
Use the preinstalled drivers. Open System Preferences > Print and Scan, delete the printer and add it again. It will ask you to download the drivers, and it must work

Software Update or the drivers at http://support.apple.com/kb/DL894 update Brother printer drivers, but not the Brother scanner/twain drivers.
For those you need to go to http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/os/macintosh.html
and download the Twain driver for your printer.
I was able to get scanning working again in 10.8 after installing the correct Twain driver from Brother.
