Abstract

A number of factors appear to be important in the development of body image and a sense of embodiment. This paper reviews how neurological and psychiatric disorders, experimental procedures and physical disability can give insight into the psychological and neurological mechanisms that underlie the development of embodied experience. Five main areas are examined within the paper; psychotic disorders and experiences, eating disorders, neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders, experimental procedures and phantom limbs and prosthetics.
