Is there a biological basis of ego and anger?

Recent evidence from neurobiological research has shown that von Economo Neurons (VENs) in the frontol cortex of brain may be a seat of awareness, consciousness and self. Is it possible to extend this concept to ego and anger?

A small article http://www.nariphaltan.org/ego.pdf shows how it is possible.

Comments, discussion and feedback are welcome.

    Oct 13 2012: Thanks for the comments to this debate. Yes the frontal lobes of the brain are involved in emotions and other higher order thinking but what is a possible mechanism is what I have described in the essay.

    A reading of that essay and debate on it will be appreciated.

    Cheers.
