Frederique de Vignemont works in philosophy of cognitive science. Her training has been both in philosophy (at the Jean-Nicod Institute, Paris and at the department of philosophy, NYU) and in cognitive science (at the Institute of Cognitive Science, Lyon and at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, London). Her current work is twofold. First, she works on bodily self-awareness, and in particular on the sense of bodily ownership. Her second main interest concerns the relationship between self and other, and in particular empathy and shared representations between self and other. She is currently finishing a book entitled "Mind the body" to appear in Oxford University Press.
