“The regions of the brain involved in introspection and sensory perception are completely segregated, although well connected,” says Goldberg, “and when the brain needs to divert all its resources to carry out a difficult task, the self-related cortex is inhibited.”

The results support the notion that self-related processes are not necessarily engaged during sensory perception and can be actually suppressed."
