Yet, despite the effort that has recently been made in the field, the exact location of the human vestibular cortex and its implications in various perceptional, emotional, and cognitive processes remain debated. Here, we argue for a vestibular contribution to what is thought to fundamentally underlie human consciousness, i.e., the bodily self. We will present empirical evidence from various research fields to support our hypothesis of a vestibular contribution to aspects of the bodily self, such as basic multisensory integration, body schema, body ownership, agency, and self-location. We will argue that the vestibular system is especially important for global aspects of the self, most crucially for implicit and explicit spatiotemporal self-location. Furthermore, we propose a novel model on how vestibular signals could not only underlie the perception of the self but also the perception of others, thereby playing an important role in embodied social cognition.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
