Body representations and cues for body ownership: Neural processing and influences on perception and action.

I am particularly interested in body perception and cognition, neuropsychology and human functional and structural neuroimaging. My research project is concerned with the investigation of perceptual and cognitive mechanisms as well as underlying neural processes that lead to a sense of body ownership, as well as how perception and cognition can be modulated by a sense of body ownership. Furthermore, I would like to study how these mechanisms are affected in patients who experience their own limb as not belonging to them (asomatognosia) and attribute their own body part to another person (somatoparaphrenia) after suffering a stroke.
