Behavioral and Lesion Studies of Corporeal Awareness

This line of research explores the neural underpinnings of body perception and corporeal awareness in healthy subjects (Urgesi et al, Nature Neuroscience, 2007; Candidi et al, Social Neuroscience 2008) and in people with brain damage (Moro et al, 2008; 2012) and spinal cord lesions (Pernigo et al, 2012; TIdoni et al, in preparation, Scandola et al, in preparation).

Moreover, we aim to explore a variety of neurological syndromes characterized by defective awareness of perceptuo-motor, cognitive or emotional deficits (Canzano et al, in preparation).
