Neurophysiological mechanisms underlying visual-nociceptive integration in the representation of the body and the peripersonal space

This research project investigates the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying visual-nociceptive integration in the representation of the body and the peripersonal space. More specifically, the recording of steady state evoked brain potentials is used to explore how nociceptive stimulation affects the processing of external visual stimuli in order to form a meaningful multimodal representation of physical threats.
