This chapter reviews the cognitive neuroscience of the self, with particular reference to imaging studies in normal subjects. It first discusses the difficulties in performing this type of research. It then divides the studies of the self under four main headings: self-awareness and first-person perspective, autobiographical memory, agency, and self-concept. These distinctions allow a succinct and cohesive review of the literature.

Keywords:   self, cognitive neuroscience, self-awareness, first-person perspective, autobiographical memory, agency, self-concept
