Event description

Description

No comprehensive view has developed on how the brain represents the body.

This might be related to the methodological constraints in researching this area: as William James stated: “our body is always there”. Additionally, there has always been a scarce dialogue between different approaches to the study of body representation. Remarkably, however, the future of research in body representation would have to integrate lab-based research, clinical approaches and the development of new technologies, such as virtual reality embodiment.

The BRNet proposed workshop aims to treat body representation with a multidisciplinary multifaceted approach, organizing a meeting between experts with the aim of communicating findings and sharing paradigms, considering the needs of the different settings, and finally promoting awareness in other disciplines.

Attendance at the workshop is free but spaces are limited. Please register.

We look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh,

Elisa, Anna and Gianna
