Abstract and Keywords

This article presents a model of delusional experience which provides an integrated approach in which aberrations at the neurological level are directly related to a disorder of experience. It argues that higher order cognitive effects are not the proper locus for the explanation of the delusional experience itself. Through following out the neurological and phenomenological underpinnings of misattribution, this article provides a bottom-up account of the genesis of schizophrenic delusions, particularly those involving the misattributions of agency.

Keywords: delusional experience, cognitive effects, schizophrenic delusions, neurological level, misattribution
