Neuroscience has recently been a very large interest of mine. As a psychobiology major we briefly have touched on it in one of my social psychology classes where we explored what it actually meant to have consciousness. We learned that there are two types of consciousness that know brains have until know. Stream of consciousness, which means there is input to the brain. This is what animals have, where they can take in information with their senses and react to them but they cannot however consciously reflect on that information. The second type is the type that human brains have evolved the capacity to achieve: Reflexive consciousness. Our ability to take in information with our senses and think about, organize and understand that information. This ability is what has set mankind so far apart from every other species on the planet.
