Perspectival Structure and Vestibular Processing: A Commentary on Bigna Lenggenhager & Christophe Lopez

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Adrian John Tetteh Alsmith

I begin by contrasting a taxonomic approach to the vestibular system with the structural approach I take in the bulk of this commentary. I provide an analysis of perspectival structure. Employing that analysis and following the structural approach, I propose three lines of empirical investigation to selectively manipulate and measure vestibular processing and perspectival structure. The hope is that this serves to indicate how interdisciplinary research on vestibular processing might advance our understanding of the structural features of conscious experience.
