This chapter examines the results of neuroimaging studies which investigated the cerebral correlates of ‘self’, ‘other’ representation, the resting state, reasoning, and memory recall. The results reveal that processing self-related contents, reading others' minds, and resting state recruit a wide common cortical network including the medial prefrontal cortex, precuneus, and temporal poles. This chapter proposes that the self is primarily characterized by its first-person perspective and functionally determined by self-specifying processes.

Keywords:   self image, others, reasoning, memory recall, resting state, cortical network, first-person perspective
