Linking Out-of-Body Experience and Self Processing to Mental Own-Body Imagery at the Temporoparietal Junction
It is suggested that the temporoparietal junction is a crucial structure for the conscious experience of the normal self, mediating spatial unity of self and body, and also suggest that impaired processing at the TPJ may lead to pathological selves such as OBEs.
Out-of-body experience, heautoscopy, and autoscopic hallucination of neurological origin Implications for neurocognitive mechanisms of corporeal awareness and self-consciousness

Evoked potential mapping and a distributed linear inverse solution show that distributed brain activity at the EBA and TPJ as well as their timing are crucial for the coding of the self as embodied and as spatially situated within the human body.

A novel task for the quantitative assessment of both originality and speed of individual associations and a model of association behavior that captures both ‘positive’ psychological aspects and ‘negative’ aspects is proposed, and its relevance for psychiatry is outlined.
Cognition and brain function in schizotypy: a selective review.
It is concluded that schizotypy is a construct with apparent phenomenological overlap with schizophrenia and stable interindividual differences that covary with performance on a wide range of perceptual, cognitive, and motor tasks known to be impaired in schizophrenia.
Schizotypy--do not worry, it is not all worrisome.
Future studies should explore the behavioral, genetic, imaging, and psychopharmacological correlates that define the healthy expression of psychotic-like traits, and inform on protective or compensatory mechanisms of psychosis-risk and could usefully inform us on the evolutionary advantages of the psychosis dimension.
Men perform comparably to women in a perspective taking task after administration of intranasal oxytocin but not after placebo
It is suggested that self-report measures might be less sensitive to OT effects than more implicit measures of empathy such as that used in Study 2, and that any such effect is best studied using more implicit Measures of empathy rather than explicit self- report measures.
Loose but Normal: A Semantic Association Study

It is conjecture that for normal subjects high on MI “loose associations” may not be loose after all, and that the tendency to link uncommon, nonobvious, percepts may not only be the basis of paranormal and paranoid ideas of reference, but also a prerequisite of creative thinking.
The influence of sex and empathy on putting oneself in the shoes of others.
Results from the 3PP-task showed higher rotational costs for women than men, suggesting that mental rotation rather than social strategies had been employed, and faster responding by women with higher empathy scores would appear to indicate that some women engaged social perspective taking strategies irrespective of the figures' position.
