That's My Hand! Activity in Premotor Cortex Reflects Feeling of Ownership of a Limb
When we look at our hands, we immediately know that they are part of our own body. This feeling of ownership of our limbs is a fundamental aspect of self-consciousness. We have studied the neuronalExpand

In many everyday situations, our senses are bombarded by many different unisensory signals at any given time. To gain the most veridical, and least variable, estimate of environmentalExpand
Psychologically induced cooling of a specific body part caused by the illusory ownership of an artificial counterpart
The sense of body ownership represents a fundamental aspect of our self-awareness, but is disrupted in many neurological, psychiatric, and psychological conditions that are also characterized byExpand
Multisensory prior entry.
Despite 2 centuries of research, the question of whether attending to a sensory modality speeds the perception of stimuli in that modality has yet to be resolved. The authors highlight weaknessesExpand
The science of interpersonal touch: An overview
Surprisingly little scientific research has been conducted on the topic of interpersonal touch over the years, despite the importance of touch in our everyday social interactions from birth throughExpand
Confusing the mind by crossing the hands.
Observers made temporal order judgements (TOJs) regarding which of two tactile stimuli presented to either hand (at stimulus onset asynchronies of up to 200 ms) occurred first. When the observers'Expand
Visual Capture of Touch: Out-of-the-Body Experiences With Rubber Gloves
When the apparent visual location of a body part conflicts with its veridical location, vision can dominate proprioception and kinesthesia. In this article, we show that vision can capture tactileExpand
Early Vision Impairs Tactile Perception in the Blind
Researchers have known for more than a century that crossing the hands can impair both tactile perception and the execution of appropriate finger movements. Sighted people find it more difficult toExpand
Visual Prior Entry
It has long been claimed that attended stimuli are perceived prior to unattended stimuli—the doctrine of prior entry. Most, if not all, studies on which such claims have been based, however, are openExpand
The Handbook of Multisensory Processing
This landmark reference work brings together for the first time in one volume the most recent research from different areas of the emerging field of multisensory integration. After many years ofExpand
