Research Project B01

B01-1 Modeling of slow dynamics on body representations in brain

Research Outline

Body consciousness such as sense of agency and sense of ownership is generated in real time based on the body representation in brain. This process can be called “fast dynamics.” On the other hand, the body representation is created, updated and transformed through perceptional and motion experience, which can be called “slow dynamics.” In this group, these dynamics on the process creating and updating body representation in brain related to body consciousness are investigated and modeled mathematically. The concrete objectives of B01 research group are mathematical modeling of creation of body consciousness and transformation of body representation of brain, verification of
cognition-body mapping model, and examination of its application to model-based rehabilitation.
