Abstract

In this paper, a first step towards a computational model of the self-attribution of agency is presented, based on Wegner's theory of apparent mental causation. A model to compute a feeling of doing based on first-order Bayesian network theory is introduced that incorporates the main contributing factors to the formation of such a feeling. The main contribution of this paper is the presentation of a formal and precise model that can be used to further test Wegner's theory against quantitative experimental data.
