How do you perceive your bodily signals?

Denna studie är avslutad och tar tyvärr inte emot flera anmälningar!
Do you want to find out more about the way you perceive your own body?

I'm recruiting 18-40 year old people for a study at Karolinska Institutet (Biomedicum building) investigating the contribution of internal bodily signals (e.g. heartbeat, pleasure from touch, temperature, etc) on the way we perceive our body as our own. The session will last around 1 hour.

First, you will be asked to complete some questionnaires on body awareness. You will then be asked to count your own heartbeats and to look at a rubber hand whilst your own hand is touched. Finally, you will answer some questions about the experience.
As a thank you for your time, you will receive one cinema ticket!

You must be right handed, not have history of mental health conditions, healthy and not taking any medication, and speak English to take part. Please note that you can't take part if you have a sensory disorder or skin related condition (e.g. psoriasis), or big tattoos or scars on your left arm.

If you're interested, or would like more information, please send me an email at
