How do we recognize our body during voluntary action? We both have a sense that our body belongs to us (i.e., feeling of ownership), and have a sense of being the author of its movements (e.g., sense of agency).
Andreas is interested in how these two different processes work together and how they are implemented in the brain.
Furthermore, he is interested in what relevance these mechanisms have for higher cognitive functions (embodied cognition).
