Aïda Raoult, "Assessing the accuracy of introspection through neurofeedback".

Abstract : The validity of introspection as an access to self is the subject of an old debate between the Cartesian infallibility on one side and the unreliability notably defended by Auguste Comte on the other. Recent work (Nisbett and Wilson [1977], Schwitzgebel [2008]) have used experimental psychology to support the unreliability thesis. However, these studies raise an issue insofar as they are carried without any feedback on the introspective domain. Adopting a neurophenomenological perspective, this thesis aims at confronting the two traditional stances by exploring experimentally the interactions between brain states and introspection, using brain computer interfaces. The goal of this work will be threefold: first, we want to identify a set of cognitive processes that would be relevant for studying the introspective process; second we need to improve the computer interfaces allowing a real-time monitoring of a cognitive activity; and third we will perform experiments to measure the accuracy of introspective perception, perhaps also by identifying introspective profiles. This work will shed a new light on the legitimacy of introspection, by providing innovative tools to empirically and theoretically bridge the two classical positions.
