Main Goals, Keywords

Our group investigates multisensory and neural mechanisms underlying sense of a bodily self and conditions in which these mechanisms are disturbed. One of our main focus is the vestibular system and its contribution to the sense of a coherent self. We aim to use the resulting insights in order to develop non-invasive therapies for patients with disorders of the bodily self.

Keywords: self consciousness, multisensory, vestibular, rtfMRI, illusions, interoception
