Varieties of Self Disorder: A Bio-Pheno-Social Model of Schizophrenia.

A bio-pheno-social model is preferable to uni-dimensional alternatives to account for distinctive yet varying experiential and neurocognitive abnormalities found in research on schizophrenia, and to integrate these with recent psychosocial and neurobiological findings.

Schizophrenia in the World: Arguments for a Contextual Phenomenology of Psychopathology

Fundamental texts in phenomenology and phenomenological psychopathology are reviewed, finding support for broadening contemporary phenomenological models of schizophrenia to incorporate world events and their subjective meaning as essential aspects of this disorder.

Uncanny Mirroring: A Developmental Perspective on the Neurocognitive Origins of Self-Disorders in Schizophrenia

It is proposed that age-appropriate, phenomenologically oriented assessment of SDs could be useful for the early identification of psychotic risk, and it is concluded thatSDs could presumably have an early developmental origin, although children become progressively more aware of them.

The neurophenomenology of early psychosis: An integrative empirical study

Anomalous Self-Experiences: Markers of Schizophrenia Vulnerability or Symptoms of Depersonalization Disorder? A Phenomenological Investigation of Two Cases

The DPD case may be characterized only by secondary ASEs and thus better protected against psychotic decompensation than the SPD case, tentatively affected by a combination of primary and secondary A SEs.

The Intersubjective Dimension of Schizophrenia

It is argued that the current phenomenological approach to schizophrenia may need to extend its focus to include the intersubjectivity disturbances more explicitly, and theoretical ways to do so are explored.

The Intersubjective Dimension of Schizophrenia

It is argued that the current phenomenological approach to schizophrenia may need to extend its focus to include the intersubjectivity disturbances more explicitly, and theoretical ways to do so are explored, including ‘open subjectivity’.

Basic Self-Disturbances beyond Schizophrenia: Discrepancies and Affinities in Panic Disorder - An Empirical Clinical Study

This study supports the basic-self-disturbance model of schizophrenia, while suggesting the possibility of transnosological “schizophrenia-like phenomena,” which might require careful phenomenological exploration to be distinguished from those of true psychotic or schizophrenic conditions.



Phenomenological Psychopathology and Schizophrenia: Contemporary Approaches and Misunderstandings

The present paper clarifies key issues in phenomenology and phenomenological psychopathology (especially of schizophrenia) through a critique of a recent article that addresses these topics. Topics

Perceptual anomalies in schizophrenia: integrating phenomenology and cognitive neuroscience.

Evidence is presented from phenomenology and cognitive neuroscience that changes in the perceptual field in schizophrenia may represent a core impairment and relationships of deficits in perceptual organization to cognitive and social dysfunction as well as the possible neurobiological mechanisms are discussed.

Schizophrenia, consciousness, and the self.

This article proposes a unifying account emphasizing basic abnormalities of consciousness that underlie and also antecede a disparate assortment of signs and symptoms of schizophrenic symptoms, and introduces the phenomenological approach along with a theoretical account of normal consciousness and self-awareness.

Bridging disparate symptoms of schizophrenia: a triple network dysfunction theory

This article aims to propose and support a concept of a triple brain network model of the dysfunctional switching between default mode and central executive network (CEN) related to the aberrant activity of the salience network and review previous studies which document the dysfunctions of self and ToM in schizophrenia.

Explanation and description in phenomenological psychopathology

Summaryaim of this article is to lay out a number of ways in which the phenomenological approach to psychopathology can be not merely “descriptive”, but contribute as well to the project of

Psychosis as a state of aberrant salience: a framework linking biology, phenomenology, and pharmacology in schizophrenia.

A heuristic framework for linking the psychological and biological in psychosis is provided and it is proposed that a dysregulated, hyperdopaminergic state, at a "brain" level of description and analysis, leads to an aberrant assignment of salience to the elements of one's experience, at an "mind" level.

Negative symptoms, schizophrenia, and the self

Currently, the most prominent way of subtyping schizophrenic symptoms is the distinction between the “positive” and “negative” syndromes (often supplemented by a third group of “disorganization”
