Research

The question of how the brain produces the feeling of being inside one's own body, localized in a certain place in the external world, is a fundamental one. The aim of Arvid's research is to investigate the neural link between self-perception of one's body and perceived self-location in the world, using behavioral measurements, fMRI and TMS.
