Body consciousness: brain mechanisms of representation of the self and others

This course brings together a number of internationally known scientists who carry out research on the general theme of body representation - how the brain creates an internal representation of the body and distinguishes it from the rest of the external world. The neural correlates of body representation and visualisation of body movement of the self and the others will be presented. Dislocation of body image, that is attribution of external objects as being part of one’s body, and how this throws light on the neuroscience of body representation will also be discussed and demonstrated. Topics also include the consciousness of our own body from the point of view of philosophy, the use of virtual reality to explore and modify body schema, including neurorehabilitation, and brain computer interfaces for the control of artificial bodies.


This course is addressed to PhD students and post doctoral researchers including the fields of psychology, neurology, biology, biomedical engineering, philosophy, and computer science/virtual reality. It is expected that the participants either do research on the particular subject or they have professional interests that are specially related to the subject.
