This chapter examines depersonalization as it relates to the self. It addresses intriguing questions regarding the brain areas that are related to disturbed self-processing in this disorder, and attempts to find common ground among studies that differ widely in method and study populations. It first examines Keenan's right-hemisphere model of the self. This is followed by an examination of the early studies of depersonalization and the brain. Modern neuroimaging studies are then considered, including experiments using PET and fMRI imaging. The chapter then describes the treatment of a patient for depersonalization disorder using IMS.
