In human and non human primates, evidence has been reported supporting the idea that near peripersonal space is represented through integrated multisensory processing. In humans, the interaction between near peripersonal space representation and action execution can be revealed in brain damaged patients through the use of tools that, by extending the reachable space, modify the strength of visual-tactile extinction, thus showing that tool-mediated actions modify the multisensory coding of near… CONTINUE READING
