This chapter introduces the study of meditation as a vehicle for discovering the neural correlates of the self. It begins with a thorough introduction to experiments designed to isolate the neural components of meditation. Studies on meditation are discussed, which show precuneal, medial frontal, and striatal activation during meditation. It is argued that a network involving medial parietal, medial prefrontal, and right lateral parietal regions are critically involved in self-representation.
