Bodily illusions and the sense of self

MelSlaterMavi2012 smallHow is it that we know that our body is ours and that we own it? How do we feel our own body? Does how our body feel affect how we think? Our attitudes? Desires? If any of these questions intrigue you, then you will enjoy this special seminar by two of the world’s leading experts in this area.


The University of South Australia, in partnership with University College London and PainAdelaide, present Professor Mel Slater from ICREA-University of Barcelona and University College London and Professor Maria V. Sanchez-Vives, from ICREA (Catalan Institute for Research and Advanced Studies) . Their work has pushed the boundaries of our understanding of the interaction between our sense of body and a range of other thoughts, beliefs and perceptions (information processing in the cerebral cortex, body representation and the use of virtual reality from a neuroscience and medical perspective).
