Humans possess a highly-elaborated representation of their own image. Previous research focused on the extreme familiarity of the self-face as a driving factor of the prioritised processing of this stimulus. However, the self-face differs from other faces not only in respect of its familiarity but also in respect of its emotional significance. Therefore, in this ERP study, we aimed at elucidating the role of the emotional load factor in preferential processing of the self-face. The self-face, emotionally positive, emotionally negative faces as well as neutral faces (control condition) were presented to 30 participants. The inclusion of emotionally positive (i.e. happy) faces was based on the well-documented the self-positivity bias whereas the inclusion of emotionally negative (i.e. fearful) faces was justified by the saliency of these stimuli. Participants’ task was the simple detection of faces. Two ERP components (P300, LPP) were analysed. Results clearly indicated that processing of the self-face was associated with significantly increased amplitudes of both P300 and LPP in comparison to all other faces: fearful, happy, and neutral (all Ps < 0.001). Thus, these findings strongly suggest that electrophysiological correlates of the self-face processing do not resemble those of emotional – either positive or negative – faces, implying that self-referential processing is truly reflective of self. This research was funded by the National Science Centre Poland (Grant No. 2018/31/B/HS6/00461).
