A new study shines a light on the anterior precuneus (aPCu), a minor brain structure playing a major role in shaping our sense of physical self, or 'I'.
Within a network of interconnected brain regions, the aPCu collaborates to compile data on our movements, locations, and physical sensations, forming the cornerstone of our self-perception.
When electrical impulses in the aPCu are interrupted, individuals undergo shifts in their perception of their place in the world.
This discovery propels our comprehension of self-awareness and consciousness to new horizons.
