Having a body versus moving your body: neural signatures of agency and body-ownership
Publication year: 2010

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The exact relation between the sense that one's body is one's own (body-ownership) and the sense that one controls one's own bodily actions (agency) has been the focus of much speculation, but remains unclear. On an ‘additive’ model, agency and body-ownership are strongly related; the ability to control actions is a powerful cue to body-ownership. This view implies a component common to the senses of body-ownership and agency, plus possible additional components unique to agency. An alternative ‘independence’ model holds that agency and body-ownership are qualitatively different experiences, triggered by different inputs, and recruiting distinct brain networks. We tested these two specific models by investigating the sensory and motor aspects of body-representation in the brain using fMRI. Activations in midline cortical structures were associated with a sensory-driven sense of body-ownership, and were absent in agency conditions. Activity in the pre-SMA was linked to the sense of agency, but distinct from the sense of body-ownership. No shared activations that would support the additive model were found. The results support the independence model. Body-ownership involves a psychophysiological baseline, linked to activation of the brain's default mode network. Agency is linked to premotor and parietal areas involved in generating motor intentions and subsequent action monitoring.

Sense of agency primes manual motor responses
Publication year: 2008

http://www.perceptionweb.com/abstract.cgi?id=p6045
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Perceiving the body influences how we perceive and respond to stimuli in the world. We investigated the respective effects of different components of bodily representation—the senses of ownership and agency—on responses to simple visual stimuli. Participants viewed a video image of their hand on a computer monitor presented either in real time, or with a systematic delay. Blocks began with an induction period in which the index finger was (i) brushed, (ii) passively moved, or (iii) actively moved by the participant. Subjective reports showed that the sense of ownership over the seen hand emerged with synchronous video, regardless of the type of induction, whereas the sense of agency over the hand emerged only following synchronous video with active movement. Following induction, participants responded as quickly as possible to the onset of visual stimuli near the hand by pressing a button with their other hand. Reaction time was significantly speeded when participants had a sense of agency over their seen hand. This effect was eliminated when participants responded vocally, suggesting that it reflects priming of manual responses, rather than enhanced stimulus detection. These results suggest that vision of one’s own hand—and, specifically, the sense of agency over that hand—primes manual motor responses.

Specificity and coherence of body representations
Publication year: 2009

http://www.perceptionweb.com/abstract.cgi?id=p6389
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Bodily illusions differently affect body representations underlying perception and action. We investigated whether this task dependence reflects two distinct dimensions of embodiment: the sense of agency and the sense of the body as a coherent whole. In experiment 1 the sense of agency was manipulated by comparing active versus passive movements during the induction phase in a video rubber hand illusion (vRHI) setup. After induction, proprioceptive biases were measured both by perceptual judgments of hand position, as well as by measuring end-point accuracy of subjects' active pointing movements to an external object with the affected hand. The results showed, first, that the vRHI is largely perceptual: passive perceptual localisation judgments were altered, but end-point accuracy of active pointing responses with the affected hand to an external object was unaffected. Second, within the perceptual judgments, there was a novel congruence effect, such that perceptual biases were larger following passive induction of vRHI than following active induction. There was a trend for the converse effect for pointing responses, with larger pointing bias following active induction. In experiment 2, we used the traditional RHI to investigate the coherence of body representation by synchronous stimulation of either matching or mismatching fingers on the rubber hand and the participant's own hand. Stimulation of matching fingers induced a local proprioceptive bias for only the stimulated finger, but did not affect the perceived shape of the hand as a whole. In contrast, stimulation of spatially mismatching fingers eliminated the RHI entirely. The present results show that (i) the sense of agency during illusion induction has specific effects, depending on whether we represent our body for perception or to guide action, and (ii) representations of specific body parts can be altered without affecting perception of the spatial configuration of the body as a whole.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
BACKGROUND:
Attribution of agency involves the ability to distinguish our own actions and their sensory consequences which are self-generated from those generated by external agents. There are several pathological cases in which motor awareness is dramatically impaired. On the other hand, awareness-enhancement practices like tai-chi and yoga are shown to improve perceptual-motor awareness. Meditation is known to have positive impacts on perception, attention and consciousness itself, but it is still unclear how meditation changes sensorimotor integration processes and awareness of action. The aim of this study was to investigate how visuomotor performance and self-agency is modulated by mindfulness meditation. This was be done by studying meditators’ performance during a conflicting reaching task, where the congruency between actions and their consequences is gradually altered. This task was presented to novices in meditation before and after an intensive 8 weeks mindfulness meditation training (MBSR). The data of this sample was compared to a group of long-term meditators and a group of healthy non-meditators.
RESULTS:
Mindfulness resulted in a significant shift in attribution of self-agency towards the self in both groups. Novices in mindfulness demonstrated a strongly increased sensitivity to detect external influences in the task after the MBSR intervention. Both mindfulness groups demonstrated a speed-accuracy trade-off in comparison to their respective controls. This resulted in slower and more accurate movements.
CONCLUSIONS:
Our results suggest that mindfulness meditation practice is associated with slower body movements which in turn may lead to an increase in monitoring of body states and optimized re-adjustment of movement trajectory, and consequently to better motor performance. This extended conscious monitoring of perceptual and motor cues may explain the reported shift in the attribution of self-agency by an availability of more self-related cues in the memory upon evaluation of the trial. The reduction of detection threshold in the MBSR group is also likely due to the monitoring of these processes. Our findings confirmed our assumptions about the positive effect of mindfulness on perceptual-motor integration processes.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The exact relation between the sense that one’s body is one’s own (body-ownership) and the sense that one controls one’s own bodily actions (agency) has been the focus of much speculation, but remains unclear. On an ‘additive’ model, agency and body-ownership are strongly related; the ability to control actions is a powerful cue to body-ownership. This view implies a component common to the senses of body-ownership and agency, plus possible additional components unique to agency. An alternative ‘independence’ model holds that agency and body-ownership are qualitatively different experiences, triggered by different inputs, and recruiting distinct brain networks. We tested these two specific models by investigating the sensory and motor aspects of body-representation in the brain using fMRI. Activations in midline cortical structures were associated with a sensory-driven sense of body-ownership, and were absent in agency conditions. Activity in the pre-SMA was linked to the sense of agency, but distinct from the sense of body-ownership. No shared activations that would support the additive model were found. The results support the independence model. Body-ownership involves a psychophysiological baseline, linked to activation of the brain’s default mode network. Agency is linked to premotor and parietal areas involved in generating motor intentions and subsequent action monitoring. The apparently inconsistent results between psychophysical and neuroimaging experiments are interpreted in the context of our recent understanding of neuropsychological syndromes that affect action- and/or body-awareness.

Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

The experience of agency: Feelings, judgments and responsibility
Publication year: 2009

http://cdp.sagepub.com/content/18/4/242.abstract
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The experience of agency refers to the experience of being in control both of one’s own actions and, through them, of events in the external world. Recent experimental studies have investigated howpeople recognise a
particular event as being caused by their own action or by that of another person. These studies suggest that people match sensory inputs toa prediction based on the action they are performing. Other studies have contrasted voluntary actions to physically similar but passive body movements. These studies suggest that voluntary action triggers wideranging changes in the spatial and temporal experience not only of one’s own body but also of external events.Prediction and monitoring of the consequences of one’s own motor commands produces characteristic experiences that form our normal, everyday feeling of being in control of our life. We conclude by discussing the implications of recent psychological work for our notions of responsibility for action.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Body ownership can be easily confused with the sense of controlling ones body because agency is a powerful cue to ownership: my body feels like 'mine' in part because I can control it at will. As a result, interactions between body-ownership and agency are difficult to investigate. A first imaging study using PET reveals that the right posterior insula that has been previously linked to agency, may in fact encode body-ownership. Because agency typically involves both efferent and afferent signals, previous studies have been unable to distinguish between these alternatives. We therefore developed an fMRI paradigm to investigate multisensory and sensorimotor aspects of body representation in the brain in an attempt to disambiguate the neural signatures of agency and body-ownership. Movements of the participant's hand were either self-generated or externally-generated, and video-feedback was relayed either in real-time or with a systematic delay. Analyses showed different activations in the right parietal lobe for intersensory and sensorimotor conflicts. Activity in the SMA was linked to a sense of agency distinct from the sense of body-ownership, while activations in midline cortical structures were associated with a purely sensory-driven sense of body-ownership. The results are discussed in the light of recent neurocognitive models of self.

Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

The self-other distinction: insights from self-recognition experiments
Publication year: 2008

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Recent neuroscientific studies of self-awareness have focused on how the self compares to representations of other people, on the ability to represent and attribute mental states, and on the ability to represent how the external world would appear from other viewpoints. Social cognitive neuroscience tends to emphasize the shared properties of self and others across several dimensions, such as the shared properties of actions, bodies and sensations, rather than the asymmetries between self and other. In the present chapter, we put forward the hypothesis that the experience and representation of one's own body may underpin the distinction between the self and other agents. In every inter-action, there are both private and public states and signals represented in the brain of the agent and the observer. Private signals refer to centrally generated action representations such as intentions, efferent signals (e.g. efference copy, motor commands), and re-afferent signals such as proprioception. Public signals originate from observable sensory events, both re-afferent and ex-afferent, such as visual and auditory signals that may refer to bodies, objects or complex patterns of motor behaviour How are these signals used to disambiguate the identity of bodies and the origin of actions? By focusing on recent experiments on self-recognition, we propose that the experience of one's actions, which depends largely on the processing of efferent information, may function as a unifying element that structures a coherent representation of the bodily self, as distinct from the other agents.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
Two important aspects of self-consciousness are the sense of one’s own body (socalled ‘body-ownership’) and the sense that one controls one’s own bodily actions (agency). The exact relation between these has been the focus of much speculation, but remains unclear. We distinguish two models of their relation. On an ‘additive’ model, agency and body-ownership are strongly related, because the ability to control actions is a powerful cue to body-ownership. This view implies a component common to the senses of body-ownership and agency, plus possible additional components unique to agency. An alternative ‘independence’ model holds that agency and body-ownership are qualitatively different experiences, triggered by different inputs, and recruiting distinct brain networks.
METHODOLOGY:
We developed a paradigm to investigate sensory and motor aspects of body representation in the brain using fMRI. Participant’s either made self-generated finger-movements, or remained passive while similar movements were applied to their fingers by an external force, while seeing a video image of their hand either in real-time or with a systematic delay that generated a conflict.
RESULTS:
Activations in midline cortical structures were associated with a purely sensory-driven sense of body-ownership, and were absent in agency conditions. In contrast, activity in the pre-SMA was linked to the sense of agency, but distinct from the sense of body-ownership. Importantly, no shared activations that would support the additive model were found.
CONCLUSIONS:
The results support an independence model of agency and body-ownership, and do not support the additive model. Agency and body-ownership appear to be qualitatively different experiences, representing two distinct components of self-recognition. The feeling of ownership over one’s body involves a psychophysiological baseline, linked to activation of the brain’s default mode network. Agency over one’s body is linked to premotor and parietal areas involved in the generation of motor intentions and subsequent action monitoring.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Nothing provides as strong a sense of self as seeing one's face. Nevertheless, it remains unknown how the brain processes the sense of self during the multisensory experience of looking at one's face in a mirror. Synchronized visuo-tactile stimulation on one's own and another's face, an experience that is akin to looking in the mirror but seeing another's face, causes the illusory experience of ownership over the other person's face and changes in self-recognition. Here, we investigate the neural correlates of this enfacement illusion using fMRI. We examine activity in the human brain as participants experience tactile stimulation delivered to their face, while observing either temporally synchronous or asynchronous tactile stimulation delivered to another's face on either a specularly congruent or incongruent location. Activity in the multisensory right temporo-parietal junction, intraparietal sulcus, and the unimodal inferior occipital gyrus showed an interaction between the synchronicity and the congruency of the stimulation and varied with the self-reported strength of the illusory experience, which was recorded after each stimulation block. Our results highlight the important interplay between unimodal and multimodal information processing for self-face recognition, and elucidate the neurobiological basis for the plasticity required for identifying with our continuously changing visual appearance.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Awareness of action and the attribution of agency are key issues in the neuroscientific study of consciousness. Attribution of agency involves the ability to distinguish our own actions and their sensory consequences which are self-generated from those generated by external agents. The interplay between perceptual awareness and motor awareness may be an important clue towards understanding how the brain distinguishes between self-generated and external events, and towards understanding both the brain processes and the conscious experience of being an agent. Practices like meditation can enhance cognitive processes related to self-agency as e.g. inward-attention and self-awareness. Although several EEG studies have assessed the specific impacts of meditation on brain activity, perceptual processes, and consciousness itself, it is still unclear how meditation changes sensory-motor integration processes and awareness of action. The aim of our research is to investigate not only visuomotor performance and the subjective reports of self-agency, but also the cortical correlates of the control and awareness of actions in mindfulness meditators. This will be done by studying the EEG activation pattern during a conflicting sensory-motor task, where the congruency between actions and their sensory consequences is gradually altered. This task will be presented to novices in meditation before and after an intensive 8 weeks meditation training (MBSR). The data of this sample will be compared to a group of long-term meditators and a group of healthy non-meditators. In this poster presentation only preliminary analysis of data (reaching performance and subjective sense of self-agency) will be reported.

The role of audience participation and task relevance on change detection during a card trick
Publication year: 2015

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Magicians utilize many techniques for misdirecting audience attention away from the secret sleight of a trick. One technique is to ask an audience member to participate in a trick either physically by asking them to choose a card or cognitively by having them keep track of a card. While such audience participation is an established part of most magic the cognitive mechanisms by which it operates are unknown. Failure to detect changes to objects while passively viewing magic tricks has been shown to be conditional on the changing feature being irrelevant to the current task. How change blindness operates during interactive tasks is unclear but preliminary evidence suggests that relevance of the changing feature may also play a role (Triesch et al., 2003). The present study created a simple on-line card trick inspired by Triesch et al.’s (2003) that allowed playing cards to be instantaneously replaced without distraction or occlusion as participants were either actively sorting the cards (Doing condition) or watching another person perform the task (Watching conditions). Participants were given one of three sets of instructions. The relevance of the card color to the task increased across the three instructions. During half of the trials a card changed color (but retained its number) as it was moving to the stack. Participants were instructed to immediately report such changes. Analysis of the probability of reporting a change revealed that actively performing the sorting task led to more missed changes than passively watching the same task but only when the changing feature was irrelevant to the sorting task. If the feature was relevant during either the pick-up or put-down action change detection was as good as during the watching block. These results confirm the ability of audience participation to create subtle dynamics of attention and perception during a magic trick and hide otherwise striking changes at the center of attention.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Two studies were conducted to investigate the relationships between objective performance (type I) and subjective judgments (type II or metacognition) by manipulating metacognition through hypnosis and suggestion in an action-based paradigm (i.e., rubber hand illusion). In a first study, we have developed an improved version of the classic rubber hand in the form of a robotic hand. In our initial action paradigm project, the robotic hand would provide the opportunity of refining the modulation of the sense of agency (i.e., type II) through hypnosis. Overall results show that the robotic hand induces both a sense of ownership and a sense of agency. In a second study, we attempted to modulate implicit level of agency (i.e., intentional binding measure from the original Libet clock experiment) through hypnosis by using the robotic hand device. Participants who had previously been screened for hypnotizability passed four experimental conditions. In the two hypnosis conditions (i.e., active and passive), a post-hypnotic suggestion conveyed the information that the robotic hand and the tone were due to their own (participants) movement. In reality, the robotic hand controlled the action. In the two non-hypnotic conditions, no hypnosis or suggestion was induced. Overall, results revealed a main effect of Condition where the binding between action and tone was stronger in the active vs. the passive condition, thus replicating previous studies. However, neither a main effect of Hypnosis, nor the interaction between condition and hypnosis were observed. Several methodological issues can explain these null results therefore we cannot conclude that hypnotic modulation of agency (i.e., type II) has no effect on this paradigm.

Am I moving?’ An illusion of agency and ownership in mirror-touch synaesthesia
Publication year: 2015
URL:
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0010027715300986
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Mirror-touch synaesthesia (MTS) is a condition that leads people to experience tactile sensations on their own body when watching at someone else being touched. Recent accounts postulate that MTS is linked with atypical self-other representations. It has been suggested that this may be associated with disturbances in two main components of self-awareness: sense of agency and sense of ownership. This study investigates changes in sense of agency and sense of ownership in MTS. Using a paradigm that deliberately blurs the boundaries between the self and the other, we not only found that MTS affects sense of agency and sense of ownership, but that these aspects of self-awareness are affected differently. We suggest that alterations in sense of agency can be linked to more profound disturbances in sense of ownership in MTS, and that MTS may be characterised by underlying difficulties in self-other processing.

Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES
Individuals with mirror-touch synaesthesia (MTS) experience tactile sensations on their own body when viewing touch to other people. The authenticity of these experiences has been well established, but why some people have MTS remains unclear. One theory is that MTS is related to atypical abilities in distinguishing the self from others.
AIMS
The primary aim was to examine mechanisms of self-other representation in MTS by studying major aspects of self-other perception including: the sense of ownership (the feeling that one’s body is one’s own), the sense of agency (the feeling that one’s actions are completed by oneself), and the ability to control representations of the self or other. Additionally, broader traits and cognitive styles linked with self-other representation were examined.
METHODS
A series of experiments were conducted combining methods from neuropsychology, psychophysics, and individual differences research. For example, agency and ownership perception; interoceptive sensibility and interoceptive accuracy; measures of self-other control; and psychometric personality inventories. Performance was compared between control and MTS participants.
RESULTS & CONCLUSIONS
Across several measures MTS were found to show altered self-other representations. This included atypical representations of the sense of ownership and agency (e.g. Cioffi et al., 2016), and difficulties with controlling self-other representations in circumstances where they had to inhibit others (Santiesteban et al., 2015). Collectively these findings point to altered boundaries between the self and other MTS, and are consistent with the theory that MTS is linked to a more expansive plasticity of the bodily self.
