Multisensory Body and Space Representations (BASES-EXTINCTION)

To accurately control body movements to interact with objects, our brain needs representations of the body and the nearby space. The broader aim of this research project is to study the behavioural and physiological mechanisms involved in the constitution of these representations, to identify their neural bases, in order to ...
