Christopher C. Berger, Ph.D.
Can what one imagines in one's mind change what one percieves in the external world?
In an attempt to shed light on this question, Chris is examining the relationship between mental imagery and multisensory perception using perceptual illusions and functional magentic resonance imaging (fMRI).
In another line of research, he is also investigating the role of certain afferent/efferent processes in the feeling of body ownership and the sense of agency.
