Abstract

One way of experiencing one’s own body is through physical complaints. These are perceived with varying degrees of clarity, depending on how a particular part of the body is represented in consciousness, i.e. the intensity with which a complaint is felt does not have to be directly related to the extent of an organic lesion but is rather a measure of one’s relations with one’s own body.
