Sara Coppi, MSc
(PhD Student)


Sara Coppi is a PhD student in the lab who is investigating the multisensory mechanisms of body ownership and pain perception. Her supervisors are Henrik Ehrsson and Karin Jensen. Sara has previously conducted a six-months internship in our lab for her master's degree in Cognitive Neuroscience and Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Padova, Italy, and also a one-year position as a research assistant. During these previous internship periods she worked with Nora Preuss and Henrik Ehrsson on behavioural-physiological experiments on the role of the vestibular system in full-body ownership.
