Bodily ownership and disownership


                                               Frédérique de Vignemont



Frédérique de Vignemont (CNRS) works in philosophy of cognitive science. After a PhD in philosophy supervised by Pierre Jacob on self-consciousness at the Jean-Nicod Institute (CNRS, Paris), she did a post-doc in cognitive psychology supervised by Patrick Haggard on tactile perception at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (UCL, London). In her work, she addresses questions about bodily awareness from a multidisciplinary perspective, such as the sense of bodily ownership, the spatial content of bodily sensations, the distinction between body schema and body image, etc. She is currently visiting the department of philosophy at New York University, where she is writing a book on bodily awareness (Mind the body, manuscript under preparation).
