Abstract

Although monkeys can perceive com- plex stimuli such as faces1 , only the their own face in a mirror2 higher apes are capable of recognizing . Here we show that in humans the right hemisphere of the brain seems to be preferentially involved in self-face recognition. Our findings indicate that neural substrates of the right hemi- sphere may selectively participate in processes linked to self-awareness.
