Research interests:

  • Body representations and their plasticity
  • Multisensory integration
  • Bodily illusions
  • Phantom phenomena
  • Nociception and Pain
     

I am interested the bidirectional relationships between sensory processes and body representations. I study how sensory input (e.g., visual, proprioceptive, tactile) influences how we perceive our body and, on the other side, how body perception influences sensory processes. I mainly use bodily illusions to influence body representations in healthy participants and measure behavioral and physiological responses. But I am also interested in studying special populations in whom body representations are altered (e.g., amputees with phantom phenomena or patients with chronic pain).
