Abstract：Emotional awareness refers to identification and description of emotion，which is a type of cognitive processing undergoing five levels of transformation，i.e.，awareness of bodily sensations，the body in action，individual feelings，blends of feelings，and blends of blends of feelings. Based on the cognitive-developmental theory of emotional awareness，the Levels of Emotional Awareness Scales can effectively measure emotional awareness. Meanwhile，the psychological and neuroanatomical model of emotional awareness initially analyzes the neural mechanism related to different levels of emotional awareness. As to the relevant studies，clinical studies have explored the features of various patients with defects of emotional awareness，and further discussed its formation and influence mechanism. And research in the normal population expands the range of emotional awareness，more positively studying its gender differences，routes of effects and cultivation.
