  1. doi Modulation of cortical midline structures by implicit and explicit self-relevance evaluation
    Joseph M Moran
    Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH, USA
    Soc Neurosci 4:197-211. 2009
    ..Taken together, these results suggest that highly self-relevant information captures attention through neural mechanisms that are comparable to those engaged during explicit self-reflection, namely via recruitment of CMS structures...
  2. doi Dissociable neural systems supporting knowledge about human character and appearance in ourselves and others
    Joseph M Moran
    Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA
    J Cogn Neurosci 23:2222-30. 2011
    ..Thus, specific neural systems mediate specific aspects of thinking about character and appearance in oneself and in others...
  3. pmc Impaired theory of mind for moral judgment in high-functioning autism

    Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 108:2688-92. 2011
    ..These findings reveal impairments in integrating mental state information (e.g., beliefs, intentions) for moral judgment...

    Susan Whitfield-Gabrieli
    Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Harvard MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology, and Poitras Center for Affective Disorders Research, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA
    Neuroimage 55:225-32. 2011
    ..These findings indicate that there are both associations (shared components) and dissociations between the neural systems underlying explicit self-reference and the default mode of brain function...
  6. pmc Social-cognitive deficits in normal aging
    Joseph M Moran
    Department of Psychology, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    J Neurosci 32:5553-61. 2012
    ..These findings suggest specific task-independent age-related deficits in mentalizing that are localizable to changes in circumscribed subregions of the default network...
  7. ncbi Medial prefrontal activity predicts memory for self
    C Neil Macrae
    Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH 03755, USA
    Cereb Cortex 14:647-54. 2004
    ..Results revealed that activity in medial prefrontal cortex predicted both subsequent memory performance and judgements of self-relevance. These findings extend current understanding of the nature and functioning of human memory...
  8. pmc Overlapping and non-overlapping brain regions for theory of mind and self reflection in individual subjects
    Rebecca Saxe
    Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, MIT, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 1:229-34. 2006
    ..Six possible models of the relationship between theory of mind, self-reflection and autobiographical memory, all consistent with both neurobiological and developmental evidence to date, are discussed...
