Investigating body ownership with virtual reality & the full-body illusion

Denna studie är avslutad och tar tyvärr inte emot flera anmälningar!

You are invited to take part in a short experiment investigating how we come to perceive that we own an entire body using the full-body illusion.

We are looking to recruit normal healthy adults, ideally who are right-handed and with normal or corrected-to-normal vision, between 18 - 35 years of age.

The experiment is very simple and involves viewing 8 videos (2-minutes each) through a virtual reality headset. Whilst observing the videos, which contain a fake plastic body, a trained experimenter will apply combinations of tactile stimulation (touches) to your real body (right arm, trunk/torso and right leg). All videos are followed by a 10-item questionnaire to assess your experience, plus a final questionnaire to assess your bodily awareness in daily life (given at the end of the experiment).

The total duration of the experiment is around 30 - 40 minutes and you will be compensated with one cinema ticket for your participation!

If you are interested in taking part or have any questions, contact me directly (Sophie O'Kane, main experimenter) at

Tack så mycket och vänliga hälsningar.
