Abstract

The discovery of von Economo neurons within macaque insular cortex by Evrard et al., 2012 described in this issue of Neuron promises a valuable experimental model to characterize their functional roles. One hypothesis, now open to wider interrogation, is that these intriguing cells mediate self-referential processes underlying or dependent upon consciousness awareness.
