Emphasizes the influence of unconscious forces on behaviour. Defence mechanisms: unconscious mental strategies the mind uses to protect itself. Reality principle: ego (executive mediator) - preconscious. Moral principle: superego (internalized ideals) - preconscious. Pleasure principle: id (unconscious psychic energy) - unconscious. Constant conflict between the id and the superego which causes anxiety. It is the job of the ego to mediate between the id and the superego. Consciousness refers to your moment-by-moment subjective experience of the world (both the external world and your internal world, i. e. , your thoughts: no single area of the brain responsible for awareness . Prefrontal motor cortex: i"m all about movement. Temporal lobe: i see and hear things. Left and right hemispheres connected by the corpus callosum.
