I would like to know what my 'consciousness' does which my prefrontal cortex does not.The prefrontal cortex “differentiates among conflicting thoughts, determines good and bad, better and best, same and different, future consequences of current activities, working toward a defined goal, prediction of outcomes, expectation based on actions, and social control …. not only are skills of comparison and understanding of eventual outcomes harbored in the prefrontal cortex but the prefrontal cortex controls the mental option to delay immediate gratification.
The prefrontal cortex is highly interconnected with much of the brain, including extensive connections with …. brain regions involved with attention, cognition, action, …. emotion. The prefrontal cortex also receives inputs from the brainstem arousal systems …. thus, there is coordination between our state of arousal and our mental state.” (wiki)
Which circumstances show me that I have a 'consciousness' function?
