How do you become aware of you own body? Body Perception Experiment

Denna studie är avslutad och tar tyvärr inte emot flera anmälningar!
In this project, we are interested in how people perceive their bodies and what processes in the brain mediate the feeling of body ownership.
New knowledge in this area not only has great scientific value, but can also increase our understanding of neurological and psychiatric disorders in bodily awareness.
Therefore, we are looking for healthy volunteers to participate in our experiment about body ownership and orientation.

During the experiment, you will wear a virtual reality headset, perform a simple perceptual task and answer a few questions.

To participate, you need to be healthy, not be taking any neurological or psychiatric medication, and need to have normal or corrected vision (contact lenses).

The experiment, and the visit to the lab, takes a bit over 1 hour.
As compensation, you will receive a free cinema ticket.
