Watch this movie. Very entertaining and informative and talks about your question. At 51 minutes, this part talks about the chemical processes of the body and brain and how emotions are created. Animated and humorous. :-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioONhpIJ-NY
Scientists have been looking for the "soul" in the Brain for a long time; it is the Soul which animates and motivates the being to act. We all seem to know that, but finding just where the soul exists is elusive.
As a rule, I hate using links to explain things. I'd rather try to word it myself. But this article really speaks to the subject, and I recommend it highly.
Surely you have raised a good question!

This question I believe to reveal an exceptionally enlightening answer this must be examined as, "What makes anything function or think?"
It's one thing pondering about people. However when we start contemplating the thoughts and actions of every living thing, we see this gets complex fast.
One thing I could say is self-evident is only humans are self-aware. So it seems whatever it is that makes everything think or act exist within each of us.
A rather interesting Bible verse is in Genesis, God created us in his image. There is yet another verse right after the eating of the tree of knowledge that says "Behold they have become like us."
So this intelligence and self awareness that seems in charge of all consciousness, appears within each of us individuality.
If that there would be an all controlling intelligence, it would seem that this same intelligence could have parts as similar to our brains that appear to function independently.
We have conscious and subconscious parts that function apparently independently.
What if what we believe is our self-awareness is really only a part of the God mind much like our subconscious is part of our conscious?
Then it would appear to seem that everything we think, say, and do is really just a part of a greater whole, much as every cell in our brains makes a part of a greater whole.
How about chi energy(or whatever you prefer to name it) running the show; using just a piece of paper , a bit of cardboard and a pin you can manifest your own chi energy at work
You can build a subtle energy pump; cut small squares of aluminium foil and pieces of paper of exactly the same size and glue them together alternately so that you have a pile of about 20 sheets in all. It's a great way of training yourself to feel subtle energies, the energy enters on the paper side and emerges on the aluminium side. Copper foil works even better, if you really want the ultimate use 18 carat gold foil.
The electret is based on this principle and acts as a rechargeable accumulator for subtle energy. An electret is a mixture of waxes, heated and cooled very slowly in a high voltage polarized electric field, wrapped in a sheet of metal foil.
have fun :)
The wisdom that knows the ingredients to form the first cell and program it for multiplication by the process of dividing itself to produce a defined shape, color, and form and supplying it with the ability to carry on zillions of functions till a defined time including emotions, thoughts, memories.
