Tokyo Conference on Philosophy of Psychiatry

The first conference on Philosophy of Psychiatry is soon to be held in the University of Tokyo (September 20-23).

Last day in the afternoon, I will participate as a discussant:

September 23, 13:10-15:40
Session H: Sense of Agency
Chair: Tetsuya Kono (Rikkyo University)
- Shaun Gallagher (University of Memphis) "Senses of agency and ownership in schizophrenia"
- Michiko Miyazaki (Otsuma Women's University) "A gaze contingent paradigm for estimating sense of agency in infants"
- Tomohisa Aai (NTT) "Interaction between agency and body ownership in terms of schizophrenia and schizotypy"
Discussant: Shogo Tanaka (Tokai University)

It is sure that there will be a hot discussion around the symptom of schizophrenia, including delusion of control, thought insertion, and made experience. Sounds exciting, doesn't it?
