Ahhh the argument on emotions (feeling) require higher brain functions.
This might be inverse to the reality.
In humans, people with mental defect seem to have a very high degree of emotion. Sometimes seemingly more then those with full mental function. Mike may example this nicely.

It may be that they "feel" far more than the cognitive abilities allow them to communicate.

Furthermore, higher brain function may be an evolutionary defect. The 6 kilogram brain has the capability to conjure up some very negative behavior. Just ask anyone who lived on the planet between Mars and Jupiter. They were doing fine until they learned how to convert gravity into distributable energy. It worked great until it lowered the density of planetary matter and the resonant frequency of the planet caused heterodynal peristalsis. The whole thing started ring until it broke up completely. Now there is just an asteroid field and nobody from there feels anything anymore.

Giant Black Sea Bass would never have been smart enough to do something so foolish.
