Body Representation

SeMoLa investigates the neurophysiological correlates of how we create a coherent combination of the different sources of information related to the body, with a particular focus on vision and somatosensation. Not only SeMoLa focuses on bottom-up sensory input but also on top-down cognitive influences on the interplay between different frames of reference for body representation. To this aim, at SeMoLa we test experimental approaches in healthy conditions and extend them to several movement disorders. This approach allows SeMoLa to assess how physical impairments are reflected in the characteristics of body representation.
