Can mirror self-recognition in mice unpack the neural underpinnings of self-awareness?

Research group Keysers
Publication year 2024
Published in Neuron
Authors Christian Keysers, Frédéric Michon

In this issue of Neuron, Yokose et al. show that mice groom a mark on their forehead when exposed to a mirror. Comparing this behavior with hominids' helps carve self-awareness into its component parts and explore the neural mechanisms of its shared components.
