In this short review, we focus on symptoms related to body representation and action awareness in two major Psychiatric Diseases: Anorexia Nervosa and Schizophrenia. First, the neurocognitive processes underlying pathological body image distortion in anorexia nervosa and delusions of alien control in schizophrenia are presented briefly. We then consider the impact of recent research findings on the development of novel forms of therapy for each of the two diseases. Greatest awareness of the latest research on neurocognitive impairments in anorexia nervosa and schizophrenia may help a therapist to better understand a patient’s subjective experience. In turn, this might help the patient to better understand and thus better deal with his/her cognitive symptoms.
