- Modulation of cortical midline structures by implicit and explicit self-relevance evaluationJoseph 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...
- Dissociable neural systems supporting knowledge about human character and appearance in ourselves and othersJoseph 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...
- Impaired theory of mind for moral judgment in high-functioning autismJoseph M Moran
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...
- Associations and dissociations between default and self-reference networks in the human brainSusan 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...
- Social-cognitive deficits in normal agingJoseph 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...
- Medial prefrontal activity predicts memory for selfC 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...
- Overlapping and non-overlapping brain regions for theory of mind and self reflection in individual subjectsRebecca 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...
