The temporoparietal junction is a portion of the brain where the temporal lobe and the parietal lobe meet. Despite being a fairly small portion of the brain, it appears to be responsible for integrating a person's sense of self with the outside environment, essentially linking sensory information with memory. Damage to the junction is characterized by a loss of the ability to make moral decisions and can lead to out-of-body experiences. It has a role in several diseases of the mind including amnesia, Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia.
