How the body in action shapes the self
In the present paper we address the issue of the role of the body in shaping our basic self-awareness. It is generally taken for granted that basic bodily self-awareness has primarily to do with

The experience that the body is part of the self, and in particular that my body belongs to me in all its parts, in a coherent and continuous way, is a fundamental aspect of consciousness. Moreover,
A Sensorimotor Network for the Bodily Self
TLDR
The data seem to support the existence of a sense of bodily self encased within the sensorimotor system, and it is proposed that such a sensorsimotor representation of the bodily self might help to differentiate the authors' own body from that of others.
The Paradigmatic Body: Embodied Simulation, Intersubjectivity, the Bodily Self, and Language
In this paper we propose a way in which cognitive neuroscience could provide new insights on three aspects of social cognition: intersubjectivity, the human self, and language. We emphasize the
Embodied Simulation: A Paradigm for the Constitution of Self and Others
The main criticism Pfeiffer advances in his commentary is that our proposal is too narrow. Embodied simulation (ES) , in his view equated to motor resonance, is not a sufficiently primary mechanism

TLDR
The philosophical roots of the idea of a disembodied mind and the way in which this impacts the authors' relationship with the world are explored and how to use embodied countertransference to overcome the loss of temporality that is characteristic of states of psychic deadness is suggested.
Frontier of Self and Impact Prediction
TLDR
The most recent methods used to estimate peripersonal space boundaries by the means of dynamic stimuli are described and how impact prediction and approaching stimuli modulate this space by social, emotional and action-related components involving principally a parieto-frontal network is highlighted.

TLDR
A dual objective is to develop this approach in order to account for the crucial role of motor intentionality in action and intention understanding below and before any metarepresentational ability.

TLDR
Recent neurophysiological and brain imaging data on monkeys and humans are discussed, showing that the 'like me' analogy may rest upon a series of 'mirror-matching' mechanisms.
