Brain networks underpinning body ownership and multisensory integration: physiological and behavioral evidences

My PhD project aims to investigate the brain networks underpinning body ownership and multisensory integration, focusing on the cerebral connectivity among motor, sensory and integrative cortices which pertain the construction of a unitary body representation. I intend to fulfill these purposes by means of both behavioral procedures and neurophysiological techniques, such as brain stimulation protocols (e.g. PAS, cortico-cortical PAS, cross-modal PAS) or recording the brain activity (e.g. electroencephalography, functional magnetic resonance imaging). These techniques will be employed with the objective of shedding light on a brain network model, within the framework of predictive coding.
