Please visit my website for the latest information about my research.  

My central research question is how the brain represents the body I have and move as my body. In my experiments, I use virtual reality and bodily illusions to manipulate the multisensory feedback from the own body, likewise during rest and action; I use mainly fMRI to look at how the brain treats, and adapts to, such manipulations, and the resulting changes in one’s body representation. I like to interpret these experimental results within theoretical frameworks of probabilistic world- and self-modeling in the brain.
