AccueilBodily sensations and bodily awareness: building blocks of subjectivity

*  *  *

Publié le mercredi 28 septembre 2016 par Céline Guilleux

Résumé

Bodily sensation is a key component of self-awareness, but the cognitive and neural processes that transform specific sensory inputs into a general sense of one’s own body are scarcely understood. At this meeting, experts in psychology, neuroscience and philosophy of the body will focus on how the brain integrates sensory inputs into a coherent representation of one’s own body.

Presentation

Bodily sensation is a key component of self-awareness, but the cognitive and neural processes that transform specific sensory inputs into a general sense of one’s own body are scarcely understood.  At this meeting, experts in psychology, neuroscience and philosophy of the body will focus on how the brain integrates sensory inputs into a coherent representation of one’s own body.  In addition to considering perceptual and neurophysiological data, the meeting will cover conceptual work assessing how integrative somatosensory and motor processing might contribute to the sense of self, and what kind of self might result from such mechanisms.
