How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
During navigation, humans mainly rely on egocentric and allocentric spatial strategies, two different frames of reference working together to build a coherent representation of the environment. Spatial memory deficits during navigation have been repeatedly reported in patients with vestibular disorders. However, little is known about how vestibular...
Article
Full-text available
The human vestibular cortex has mostly been approached using functional magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography combined with artificial stimulation of the vestibular receptors or nerve. Few studies have used electroencephalography and benefited from its high temporal resolution to describe the spatiotemporal dynamics of vestibu...

This paper proposes a qualitative study exploring anomalous self and world-experiences in individuals with high levels of depersonalization traits. Depersonalization (DP) is a condition characterized by distressing feelings of being a detached, neutral and disembodied onlooker of one’s mental and bodily processes or even of reality itself (‘dereali...
Article
Full-text available
There are tight functional and anatomical links between the vestibular and interoceptive systems, and both systems have shown to fundamentally underlie emotional processes and our sense of a bodily self. Yet, nothing is known about how long-term bilateral vestibulopathy (BVP) influences interoception and its relation to embodiment and the sense of...
Article
Full-text available
Third-person perspective full-body illusions (3PP-FBI) enable the manipulation, through multisensory stimulation, of perceived self-location. Perceived self-location is classically measured by a locomotion task. Yet, as locomotion modulates various sensory signals, we developed in immersive virtual reality a measure of self-location without locomot...
Article
Introduction Les informations vestibulaires (issues de l’oreille interne) et les informations intéroceptives (provenant du cœur, des reins, des viscères, etc.) seraient essentielles à la construction d’une conscience de soi corporelle et à la perception de l’espace. Une perte vestibulaire peut modifier la conscience de soi, tout autant que celle de...
Article
Full-text available
There is increasing evidence that vestibular disorders evoke deficits reaching far beyond imbalance, oscillopsia and spatial cognition. Yet, how vestibular disorders affect own-body representations, in particular the perceived body shape and size, has been overlooked. Here, we explored vestibular contributions to own-body representations using two...
Article
Introduction La localisation du soi corporel–l’expérience que le soi est situé en un point unique de l’espace à un moment donné (normalement dans le corps)–dépend de l’intégration cohérente de signaux visuels, tactiles, proprioceptifs, vestibulaires et intéroceptifs. L’« illusion du corps entier » permet de manipuler expérimentalement la localisati...
Article
Introduction Recent studies have highlighted the vestibular contributions to cognition, affective control and self-consciousness (Lopez, 2016), but only few studies measured how cognition influences vestibular information processing. There is to date no neurophysiological study linking vestibular processing and social cognition. This is surprising...
Article
Introduction Le rôle des informations vestibulaires dans la cognition spatiale est de plus en plus étudié. En particulier, les informations vestibulaires canalaires influencent la prise de perspective visuo-spatiale en troisième personne, c’est-à-dire la simulation d’un point de vue allocentré. En revanche, peu d’études se sont intéressées à l’infl...
