The theory underlying this study emphasizes that the Self constituted an integral, structural and organising core of an individual’s personality. The findings of the study both add to the growing evidence that conceptualizes the experiential selfhood in terms of self-referential processes, and also illuminate the link between such processes and their neurophysiological representation by means of a specially dedicated and

operationally integrated brain network. Such self-referential brain network is quite heterogeneous – it consists of at least three distinct subnets or modules that serve separate but interacting qualities characterizing complex selfhood. As a whole, it organises overall human behaviour and mental life from a first-person perspective.
