This spatial unity may break down in certain neurological conditions such as out-of-body experiences, leading to a striking disturbance of bodily self-consciousness. On the basis of these clinical data, we designed an experiment that uses conflicting visual-somatosensory input in virtual reality to disrupt the spatial unity between the self and the body. We found that during multisensory conflict, participants felt as if a virtual body seen in front of them was their own body and mislocalized themselves toward the virtual body, to a position outside their bodily borders. Our results indicate that spatial unity and bodily self-consciousness can be studied experimentally and are based on multisensory and cognitive processing of bodily information.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Blanke, Olaf</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Tadi, Tej</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2007-08-24</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Metzinger, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Metzinger, Thomas</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Tadi, Tej</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Lenggenhager, Bigna</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
