  • Psychology as a Biological Science

Research Activities

The brain is adapted for integrating an array of temporally asynchronous sensations which allow one to experience the world as an integrated and unified percept. My research is focused on how the integration of sensorimotor stimulation facilitates or interferes with different aspects of bodily self-awareness. I am interested in how this process plays a role in: (1) the emergence of an explicit awareness of self and (2) in children and adults who are affected by conditions that disrupt or distort perceptual awareness.
