A rather ill-defined concept, really.

Self-discrepancy theory has better definitions for the same processes we find in Freud's tripartite structure of mind/personality.

Hello Kendra. I am a student in 8th grade at Notre Dame Prep. I was looking at one of your about.com websites. Specifically your, "How Big Is the Brain" I may have found an error. Well it is that a brain is about 15 centimeters long, I was wondering if you took the neocortex into play? The Neocortex alone is about 1.5 square feet long. So were you taking the neocortex into consideration or not. Because, there is also the grey and white matter. Which you may take into consideration. So I was wondering if you could fill me in on this. I got my information from a book called NeuroScience for dummies, by Frank Amthor a professor from the university of alabama. Thank you for your time. Please contact me back. I am very interested in neuroscience. I also want to become better at it. Thank you
