  • 1 August 2012
Recent research has linked bodily self-consciousness to the processing and integration of multisensory bodily signals in temporoparietal, premotor, posterior parietal and extrastriate cortices.Expand

Full-body illusions and minimal phenomenal selfhood
We highlight the latest research on body perception and self-consciousness, but argue that despite these achievements, central aspects have remained unexplored, namely, global aspects of bodilyExpand

Video Ergo Sum: Manipulating Bodily Self-Consciousness
Humans normally experience the conscious self as localized within their bodily borders. This spatial unity may break down in certain neurological conditions such as out-of-body experiences, leadingExpand

Linking Out-of-Body Experience and Self Processing to Mental Own-Body Imagery at the Temporoparietal Junction
The spatial unity of self and body is challenged by various philosophical considerations and several phenomena, perhaps most notoriously the “out-of-body experience” (OBE) during which one's visualExpand

The thalamocortical vestibular system in animals and humans
The vestibular system provides the brain with sensory signals about three-dimensional head rotations and translations. These signals are important for postural and oculomotor control, as well as forExpand

Out-of-body experience and autoscopy of neurological origin.
During an out-of-body experience (OBE), the experient seems to be awake and to see his body and the world from a location outside the physical body. A closely related experience is autoscopy (AS),Expand

Multisensory Mechanisms in Temporo-Parietal Cortex Support Self-Location and First-Person Perspective
Self-consciousness has mostly been approached by philosophical enquiry and not by empirical neuroscientific study, leading to an overabundance of diverging theories and an absence of data-drivenExpand

Neural Basis of Embodiment: Distinct Contributions of Temporoparietal Junction and Extrastriate Body Area
Embodiment, the sense of being localized within one's physical body, is a fundamental aspect of the self. Recently, researchers have started to show that self and body processing require distinctExpand

Behavioral, Neural, and Computational Principles of Bodily Self-Consciousness
Recent work in human cognitive neuroscience has linked self-consciousness to the processing of multisensory bodily signals (bodily self-consciousness [BSC]) in fronto-parietal cortex and moreExpand

Out-of-body experience, heautoscopy, and autoscopic hallucination of neurological origin: Implications for neurocognitive mechanisms of corporeal awareness and self-consciousness
Autoscopic phenomena (AP) are rare illusory visual experiences during which the subject has the impression of seeing a second own body in extrapersonal space. AP consist of out-of-body experienceExpand
