The work group focusses on a) the neurobiological mechanisms underlying the perceived unity of body and self, b) the role of dysfunctional memory processes for body perception in psychological disorders, and c) the implications of the results for the treatment of symptoms, especially in chronic pain. The work group uses paradigms for the induction of bodily illusions. The effects are assessed by psychometrics, psychophysiological and imaging methods.
