In this paper, based on literature from Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, a computational agent model is introduced incorporating the role of emotional awareness states in the dynamics of action generation. More specifically, it covers both automatic, unconscious (bottom-up) and more cognitive and conscious (top-down) emotion generation processes, and their mutual interaction. The model was formalised in a dynamical system format. In different scenarios the model shows simulation results that are in line with patterns reported in literature.
