    For the neuroscientist, awareness would be in a part of the nervous system. In this case, the working memory. You can say that awareness of anything is an immediate and "visceral" function, and hence, is a part of the nervous system dealing with non-voluntary actions. More specifically, the activation of specific cells in the retina send signals that crate awareness. Light would be a combination of different cell firings in the brain that are formally connected to this specific kind of awareness. The Neuroscientist will be concerned with how information is transmitted to and from that system, and of course, its relation to the sense organs. This kind of informational approach of different neurons in the nervous system will be the primary concern of ...
