Research Projects

Marie Curie Project

How do we integrate signals coming from inside our body (i.e., interoception) with signals coming from outside the body (i.e., exteroception) in order to create a coherent sense of self? This project will combine behavioural, psychophysiological, and neuroimaging methods to shed new light on the specific role of skin-mediated interoceptive signals in the way we become aware of our body as or own.
