Recent work in neuroscience indicates that the subcortical mechanisms that generate motives also generate consciousness. As Mark Solms argues, this enables us to integrate neuroscience with the Freudian Ego and Id. If we take full account of the role of conflict, as described in terms of the superego, we can see that the complex role of aggression in human life ensures that much of our emotional life is unconscious.
