sights and sounds are experienced starting with changes in receptor surfaces
(retina, eardrum), they do not have the same embodied component as in touch.
This is likely because of the seemingly veridical relationship between the
location of our receptor surface (skin) and the perceived location of
sensation; one that makes it difficult to conceive that our body percepts are
strictly a product of neural processes. However, the relationship between
neural processes and body representations is clearly evident in individuals
with impairments after amputation (phantom limbs), chronic pain, or brain
damage. Research in the Medina lab is committed to understanding how we
represent the body, how we integrate body representations with spatial,
attentional, and motor systems, and how we represent the location of stimuli
in our environment.
The research uses
behavioral testing with brain damaged and neurologically intact individuals,
along with non-invasive brain stimulation techniques.
