My research focuses on the multisensory mechanisms that allow us to extract spatial information from touch using information about posture and vision, and explains how this is used to construct representations of our body and to guide our actions. I combine psychophysics, electro– and magnetoencephalography to identify the behavioural and neural correlates of these phenomena.
