Stephen Gadsby

Stephen Gadsby conducts interdisciplinary research, working at the intersection of philosophy, psychology and psychiatry. His PhD focuses on how anorexia nervosa patients cognitively represent their bodies. More specifically, how their body representations become distorted, what kinds of experiences arise from these distorted representations and what this tells us about body representation cognition in general. He also conducts research related to delusions, psychiatric taxonomy, the sense of bodily ownership, mental representation and Bayesian models of cognition.
