Pain and somatic sensation are undeniable markers of normal bodily awareness. However, the mechanism by which they are integrated into a coherent sense of the bodily self remains largely unclear. In this study, we investigated the effect of high-level multisensory manipulation on subjective experiences of pain, touch, and body-ownership. Methods: We administered visuo-tactile stimulation based on the rubber hand illusion. In a longitudinal study, we compared the strength of the illusion in a male with SCI, who initially had lost somatosensation in all his fingers, but a few months later reported signs of tactile allodynia restricted to the left C6-dermatome. Results: After the restoration of some somatosensation, even if it were painful, synchronous but not asynchronous visuo-tactile stimulation induced body illusion. Previously painful stimuli were temporarily perceived as less painful, and the patient further regained tactile sensations in adjacent numb areas. Conclusions: The sensations of touch and pain are mutually influenced and inextricably linked to a coherent representation of one’s own body. Multisensory manipulations affecting the perception and representation of the body might thus offer a powerful opportunity to mitigate nociceptive and somatic abnormalities.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Molinari, Marco</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Haggard, Patrick</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:creator>Molinari, Marco</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-04-07T09:43:07Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Pazzaglia, Mariella</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/57230"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-04-07T09:43:07Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Haggard, Patrick</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Pain and somatic sensation are transiently normalized by illusory body ownership in a patient with spinal cord injury</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Scivoletto, Giorgio</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Scivoletto, Giorgio</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
