Unity of the bodily self: fMRI experiment

Av Dennis Larsson Skapad: 2023-10-03

This study is aiming to increase understanding of how the brain creates the experience of one’s own body as a whole and singular unit.

In the experiment, you will be in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner. While in the scanner, you will wear a head mounted display through which you will be shown a series of videos of bodies receiving light tactile stimulation from a tool (a ball on a stick) to the torso and legs. Meanwhile you will receive the same kind of tactile stimulation to your own body. After each video, you will be asked to answer three quick questions about your experience.

The experiment takes approximately 2 hours, and takes place at Stockholm University Brain Imaging Centre (SUBIC).
