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.

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

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.

The role of the right temporo-parietal junction in maintaining a coherent sense of one’s body
Publication year: 2008

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0028393208002601
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We constantly feel, see and move our body, and have no doubt that it is our own. The brain possesses a distinction between the body and the objects in the outside world. This distinction may be based on a process that monitors whether sensations, events and objects should be attributed to one's body or not. We controlled whether an external object was represented as part of the body or not, by experimentally inducing a bodily illusion using correlated visual and tactile stimulation. We then studied the role of right temporo-parietal junction (rTPJ) in the processing of multisensory events that may or may not be attributed to one's body. Disruption of rTPJ using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) made the distinction between what may or may not be part of one's body on the basis of multisensory evidence more ambiguous, suggesting that the rTPJ is actively involved in maintaining a coherent sense of one's body, distinct from external, non-corporeal, objects.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

http://www.neurovr.org/emerging/volume10.html
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.

The sense of self in the brain: neural correlates of self-recognition

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.

Plasticity in unimodal and multimodal brain areas reflects multisensory changes in self-face identification
Publication year: 2013

http://cercor.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2013/08/19/cercor.bht199.abstract
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.

The different faces of one's self: An fMRI study into the recognition of current and past self-facial appearances
Publication year: 2012

http://www.theassc.org/files/assc/ASSC16_Handbook.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A plethora of research has investigated the neural basis of the ability to recognise one’s current facial appearance in photographs or mirrors. However, one important question has not previously been examined; how are images of one’s past facial appearance processed in the brain when they are also recognised as “me”? To examine this question, we used fMRI to investigate brain activity as participants viewed images of themselves, morphed with images of a personally familiar other. The images were morphs between the participants’ and the familiar others’ current facial appearances or their childhood appearances. The participants performed a self-other judgement on morphed pictures that contained 0%, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80% or 100% “self”. We analysed the fMRI data parametrically, to examine activity that covaried with the percentage of “self” present in the stimuli. Activity in areas involved in body-ownership and memory retrieval varied with the amount of the participants’ childhood face in the images, but not the amount of the participants’ current facial appearance. We also found that activity in a network of face-selective, but not self-face selective areas varied with the amount of current self in the stimuli and not the amount of childhood self. We argue that a representation of one’s current facial appearance is maintained and updated in networks that process all faces. In contrast, representations of one’s past facial appearances are stored in memory and then are re-experienced as a part of one’s own body, allowing them to be recognised as one’s own.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
More than 100 papers have been published on the rubber hand illusion since its discovery 14 years ago. The illusion has been proposed as a demonstration that the body is distinguished from other objects by its participation in specific forms of intermodal perceptual correlation. Here, we radically challenge this view by claiming that actual perceptual correlation is not necessary to produce the experience of this body as mine, as expectations about what could be my body are sufficient.
AIM OF THE STUDY
The aim of this project was to empirically provide support to the idea that peripersonal space (PPS) is not a region surrounding the body that acts as an interface between the body and the environment; rather it is actually a part of our body. To this aim we proposed to test whether it is possible to induce a sense of body ownership over a rubber hand when tactile stimuli were neither delivered over a seen rubber hand nor over the hidden participants’ hand.
METHOD
Participants were submitted to an experimental set-up similar to that employed during the standard Rubber Hand Illusion (RHI). In our case, however, instead of receiving congruent visuo-tactile stimulation, participants observe an object merely entering their own PPS and approaching the rubber hand.
RESULTS
The Project was successful in demonstrating that participants did experience a full-blown illusion. At the neural level we demonstrated that the parietal lobe, a cortical region encoding PPS, is activated by the sight of an object entering participants’ PPS.
CONCLUSION
Our results suggest that expectations about forthcoming sensory events are sufficient to induce a sense of body ownership.

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.

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:
AIM OF THE STUDY
The project aimed to investigate the contribution of brain visuo-motor areas and sensorimotor plasticity following the manipulation of subjective experience of body ownership by means of visual manipulation of body continuity.
METHOD
We collected subjective and physiological (skin conductance responses, motor evoked potentials) answers in healthy participants immersed in a virtual reality environment and explored whether visual discontinuity between the hand and limb of an avatar could reduce a person’s sense of ownership of the virtual body.
RESULTS
We observed that placing different amounts of visual discontinuity between a virtual hand and limb differently modulate the perceived sense of ownership and control over observed virtual bodies and actions. Crucially autonomic reactivity but not motor evoked potentials were modulated by the felt ownership over the virtual body. Indeed only high amplitudes of SCRs were found during the observation of both a normal hand-limb connection and a non-natural connection by means of a rigid wire. On the other hand, the analysis of subjective ratings revealed that only the observation of natural full connected virtual limb elicited high levels of ownership in all studies.
DISCUSSION
Our data show that mere observation of limb discontinuity can change a person’s ownership and agency over a virtual body observed from a first-person perspective, even in the absence of any multisensory stimulation of the real body.
Importantly different measures of physiological activity were differently modulated by subjective body ownership sensations suggesting that different methods to elicit body ownership illusions may differently affect indirect indexes of body representation.

The role of audiovisual feedback in a thought-based control of a humanoid robot: a BCI study in healthy and spinal cord injured people
Publication year: 2016
URL:
http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/7530928/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The efficient control of our body and successful interaction with the environment are possible through the integration of multisensory information. Brain-computer interface (BCI) may allow people with sensorimotor disorders to actively interact in the world. In this study, visual information was paired with auditory feedback to improve the BCI control of a humanoid surrogate. Healthy and spinal cord injured (SCI) people were asked to embody a humanoid robot and complete a pick-and-place task by means of a visual evoked potentials BCI system. Participants observed the remote environment from the robot’s perspective through a head mounted display. Human-footsteps and computer-beep sounds were used as synchronous/asynchronous auditory feedback. Healthy participants achieved better placing accuracy when listening to human footstep sounds relative to a computergenerated sound. SCI people demonstrated more difficulty in steering the robot during asynchronous auditory feedback conditions. Importantly, subjective reports highlighted that the BCI mask overlaying the display did not limit the observation of the scenario and the feeling of being in control of the robot. Overall, the data seem to suggest that sensorimotor-related information may improve the control of external devices. Further studies are required to understand how the contribution of residual sensory channels could improve the reliability of BCI systems.

Visual appearance of a virtual upper limb modulates the temperature of the real hand: A thermal imaging study in Immersive Virtual Reality
Publication year: 2017
URL:
https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/ejn.13545
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
To explore the link between Sense of Embodiment (SoE) over a virtual hand and physiological regulation of skin temperature, 24 healthy participants were immersed in virtual reality through a Head Mounted Display and had their real limb temperature recorded by means of a high-sensitivity infrared camera. Participants observed a virtual right upper limb (appearing either normally, or with the hand detached from the forearm) or limb-shaped non-corporeal control objects (continuous or discontinuous wooden blocks) from a first-person perspective. Subjective ratings of SoE were collected in each observation condition, as well as temperatures of the right and left hand, wrist and forearm. The observation of these complex, body and body-related virtual scenes resulted in increased real hand temperature when compared to a baseline condition in which a 3d virtual ball was presented. Crucially, observation of non-natural appearances of the virtual limb (discontinuous limb) and limb-shaped non-corporeal objects elicited high increase in real hand temperature and low SoE. In contrast, observation of the full virtual limb caused high SoE and low temperature changes in the real hand with respect to the other conditions. Interestingly, the temperature difference across the different conditions occurred according to a topographic rule that included both hands. Our study sheds new light on the role of an external hand's visual appearance and suggests a tight link between higher-order bodily self-representations and topographic regulation of skin temperature.

Absence of reliable physiological signature of illusory body ownership revealed by fine-grained autonomic measurement during the rubber hand illusion
Publication year: 2021

https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0237282
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The neural representation of a ‘biological self’ is linked theoretically to the control of bodily physiology. In an influential model, selfhood relates to internal agency and higher-order interoceptive representation, inferred from the predicted impact of efferent autonomic nervous activity on afferent viscerosensory feedback. Here we tested if an altered representation of physical self (illusory embodiment of an artificial hand) is accompanied by sustained shifts in autonomic activity. Participants (N = 37) underwent procedures for induction of the rubber hand illusion (synchronous stroking of own unseen hand and observed stroking of artificial hand) and a control condition (asychronous stroking). We recorded electrocardiography, electrodermal activity, and a non-invasive measure of multiunit skin sympathetic nerve activity (SKNA) from the chest. We compared these autonomic indices between task conditions, and between individuals who did and did not experience the illusion. Bayes factors quantified the strength of evidence for and against null hypotheses. Observed proprioceptive drift and subjective reports confirmed the efficacy of the synchronous (vs asynchronous) condition in inducing illusory hand ownership. Stringent discriminant analysis classified 24/37 individuals as experiencing the rubber hand illusion. Surprisingly, heart rate, heart rate variability, electrodermal activity, and SKNA measures revealed no autonomic differences between synchronous vs asynchronous conditions, nor between individuals who did or did not experience the rubber hand illusion. Bayes factors indicated substantial evidence for no physiological differences. In contrast to earlier reports, our autonomic data show the absence of a reliable change in physiological state during the rubber hand illusion. More encompassing perturbations of self-experience, for example in full body illusions, may nevertheless be coupled to, or facilitated by, changes in efferent autonomic activity and afferent viscerosensory feedback. Our findings suggest that such changes in bodily physiology are not sustained as an obligatory component of the rubber hand illusion.

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.

Title:
The effect of visual, spatial and temporal manipulations on embodiment and action

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The feeling of owning and controlling the body relies on the integration and interpretation of sensory input from multiple sources with respect to existing representations of the bodily self. Illusion paradigms involving multisensory manipulations have demonstrated that while the senses of ownership and agency are strongly related, these two components of bodily experience may be dissociable and differentially affected by alterations to sensory input. Importantly, however, much of the current literature has focused on the application of sensory manipulations to external objects or virtual representations of the self that are visually incongruent with the viewer's own body and which are not part of the existing body representation. The current experiment used MIRAGE-mediated reality to investigate how manipulating the visual, spatial and temporal properties of the participant's own hand (as opposed to a fake/virtual limb) affected embodiment and action. Participants viewed two representations of their right hand inside a MIRAGE multisensory illusions box with opposing visual (normal or grossly distorted), temporal (synchronous or asynchronous) and spatial (precise real location or false location) manipulations applied to each hand. Subjective experiences of ownership and agency towards each hand were measured alongside an objective measure of perceived hand location using a pointing task. The subjective sense of agency was always anchored to the synchronous hand, regardless of physical appearance and location. Subjective ownership also moved with the synchronous hand, except when both the location and appearance of the synchronous limb were incongruent with that of the real limb. Objective pointing measures displayed a similar pattern, however movement synchrony was not sufficient to drive a complete shift in perceived hand location, indicating a greater reliance on the spatial location of the real hand. The results suggest that while the congruence of self-generated movement is a sufficient driver for the sense of agency, the sense of ownership is additionally sensitive to cues about the visual appearance and spatial location of one's own body.
