Brain, the Self and the Person

One of the most fascinating characteristics of human nature is our ability to experience ourselves as a self and person. However, because we have no direct access to our brain in experience, the link between brain and self, and thus between mental and neural states, remains unclear. Recent imaging studies suggest …………that cortical midline structures (CMS) may be involved in the neural processing of self, but the exact physiological and psychological mechanisms required to provide a mental-neural link have yet to be elucidated.
………………………….

Specific Aims

Our aim is to investigate the link between mental and neural states, as well as how our brain constitutes the experience of a self. For this purpose, ……………….
Vision for the Future

Northoffs vision is to reveal the key mechanisms that underlie the generation of mental states and the self. …………… Insight into the link between neural and mental states bears profound implications for understanding human nature, which in turn requires the development of neuroepistemology and neuroethics. As a result, this neurophilosophical approach may enrich and complement historic and current philosophical and ethical discourse.
