Using robotic technology, we achieved specific bodily conflicts and induced predictable changes in a fundamental aspect of self-consciousness by altering where healthy subjects experienced themselves to be (self-location). Functional magnetic resonance imaging revealed that temporo-parietal junction (TPJ) activity reflected experimental changes in self-location that also depended on the first-person perspective due to visuo-tactile and visuo-vestibular conflicts. Moreover, in a large lesion analysis study of neurological patients with a well-defined state of abnormal self-location, brain damage was also localized at TPJ, providing causal evidence that TPJ encodes self-location. Our findings reveal that multisensory integration at the TPJ reflects one of the most fundamental subjective feelings of humans: the feeling of being an entity localized at a position in space and perceiving the world from this position and perspective.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Heydrich, Lukas</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Fornari, Eleonora</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Gassert, Roger</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:issued>2011-04-28</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Mouthon, Michael</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-03-16T13:44:02Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-03-16T13:44:02Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Fornari, Eleonora</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Chapuis, Dominique</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Blanke, Olaf</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Heydrich, Lukas</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Gassert, Roger</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Ionta, Silvio</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/56889"/> <dc:contributor>Ionta, Silvio</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Blanke, Olaf</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Mouthon, Michael</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Lenggenhager, Bigna</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Chapuis, Dominique</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Multisensory Mechanisms in Temporo-Parietal Cortex Support Self-Location and First-Person Perspective</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:contributor>Lenggenhager, Bigna</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
