This chapter summarizes a hierarchical framework proposed by Stuss, Picton, and Alexander (2001) that suggests different levels of awareness of self to account for variations in attributions of awareness to different brain regions. It also challenges current thinking on the relationship between theory of mind, autobiographical memory, and the frontal lobes. A reformulation of the hierarchical framework of self-awareness is presented.

Keywords:   self, self-awareness, frontal lobes, theory of mind, autobiographical memory
