REALISM PROJECT EMBODIMENT

Immersion in virtual reality is challenging the multisensory brain mechanisms underlying the integration of bodily signals that are building up the experience of perceiving the world from an embodied perspective. Recent progress in cognitive neuroscience of bodily self-consciousness were based on the ability of technology to manipulate these mechanisms; what I propose to explore is how this research provides a deeper understanding of immersion, embodiment and sense of presence.
