This chapter discusses how executive disorders can bring about an inadequate ‘theory of mind’. It describes a conceptual linkage between agency and self-awareness, and gives reasons for the suggestion that disorders of agency will give rise to disorders of self-awareness. It reviews the evidence for this view that has emerged from experimental studies of autism, concentrating on the process of action-monitoring.
