Anna Ciaunica

Anna Ciaunica is affiliated both with the MLAG and University College London. Her research focuses on atypical forms of bodily self-consciousness in two major conditions: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Depersonalization Disorder (DPD). I am also PI of an interdisciplinary project examining the mechanisms underlying atypical self-processing and self-other mirroring in DPD. I collaborate with artists and clinical psychologists in order to create immersive experiences and empathy through narratives, light and sound. She is the organizer of DISSELF 2018 – (Dis)Embodied Perception of the Self and Other and was the principal investigator for the project Estranged from Oneself: Depersonalization and multisensory integration in autistic embodiment.
