Consciousness is the state or quality of awareness or, of being aware of an external object or something within oneself. It has been defined in various ways: the ability to experience or to feel wakefulness, having a sense of selfhood or soul, and the executive control system of the mind. Emotion is any conscious experience characterised by intense mental activity and a high degree of pleasure or displeasure. In this module we look at what part the brain plays in consciousness and ‘the wiring’ that drives our emotions.
