TORRES-OQUENDO, Frances  y  TORO-ALFONSO, José. Body Representations: a Study Proposal from a Complex Perspectives. Eureka [online]. 2012, vol.9, n.1, pp.88-97. ISSN 2220-9026.

Body image is a psychological concept that refers to people"s perception of their own body. This topic has been discussed from neuropsychological perspective, cognitive psychology and social constructionism. The aim of this article is to discuss the concept of body image from a complex perspective. Specifically, we addressed the concepts of body image and body schema as body representations that can"t be separated as objects of study. Since the implementation of the culturalhistorical perspective, it"s evident that relations between body, brain and the social aspect must not be discussed in a fragmented way.

Palabras clave : Body image; Neuropsychology; Cognition; social constructivism; cultural-historical perspective.
