Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Illusory own-body perception (IOBPs) such as out of body experiences (OBEs) and distortion of body parts have attracted most interest when reported by patients suffering near-death experiences, but they have also been reported to occur spontaneously in patients with epilepsy, during dreams and have been induced by electrical stimulation of the right temporoparietal junction (TPJ). However, the neurophysiological mechanisms involved in IOBPs remain elusive. The aim of this study was to investigate under which conditions transcranial brain stimulation (TBS) can induce IOBPs.
Most remarkably, we found that only inhibition of the TPJ induced IOBPs. Neither high-frequency TBS of the TPJ nor low-frequency TBS of a control site induced such effects. Thus, our effects were area and frequency specific. Although none of the subjects reported OBEs, low-frequency TBS of the TPJ induced illusory own-body perceptions such as twitching sensations and illusory movements of body parts. Spectral EEG analyses revealed that IOBPs could only be induced, if the deactivation of the TPJ was associated with the deactivation of the frontopolar cortex. Our data imply that the impairment of a temporoparietal and a frontal network is necessary for IOBPs. In a further study we investigated the effects of TBS during REM sleep on own-body perception in dream reports. Compared with sham stimulation, a significant decrease in the amount of movements in the dream report was found only after inhibitory TBS.
These studies reveal novel approaches for probing the neurobiology of IOBPs in the awake and the sleeping mind and might provide new insights in understanding the pathophysiology of neuropsychiatric disorders associated with abnormal own-body perceptions.

Transcranial cortex stimulation as a novel approach for probing the neurobiology of dreams: Clinical and neuroethical implications
Publication year: 2010

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In the last two decades considerable progress in brain imaging techniques have led to increasing interest into the neurobiology of sleep stages and dream contents. However, this fascinating research field poses several methodological challenges. The aim of this article is to discuss these challenges and to suggest novel approaches for probing the neurobiology of dream contents. Most of all, I suggest (i) to overcome the correlative limitations of neuroimaging techniques by applying transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) during different sleep stages in order to provide causal evidence for the role of specific brain regions in different dream contents, (ii) to control for possible perceptual and cognitive biases in dream reports such as hindsight bias, (iii) to combine computer assisted qualitative data analyses of dream reports with quantitative psychometric scales by applying logistic regression analyses and (iv) to consider possible implications for psychotherapy and neuroethics.

New perspectives for the study of lucid dreaming: from brain stimulation to philosophical theories of self-consciousness
Publication year: 2010

http://archiv.ub.uni-heidelberg.de/ojs/index.php/IJoDR/article/view/586
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The neural mechanisms underlying lucid dreaming have recently been investigated using brain imaging techniques such as electroencephalography and functional magnetic resonance imaging, which produce insightful but merely correlative results. We propose that research on the neurophysiology of lucid dreaming, for instance concerning the exact relationship between the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and metacognitive insight into the fact that one is dreaming, should be complemented by methods allowing direct causal interference with neural functioning during sleep. To achieve this aim, several stimulation methods are proposed, i.e. transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial direct current stimulation, and galvanic vestibular stimulation. Given the broad range of cognitive and metacognitive processing in dreams, which support a continuous view of lucid and nonlucid dreaming, we further propose that certain aspects of dream lucidity and its neural mechanisms can be investigated in so-called ordinary, nonlucid dreams. This would allow for phenomenologically more comprehensive and practically more efficient experiments in this field of dream research. Such experiments would also provide a solid ground for understanding self-consciousness in lucid and non-lucid dreams, as well as for integrating dream research into more general neurophilosophical theories of consciousness and the self.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Theory of mind (ToM), the ability to recognize mental states of others, and empathy are crucial cognitive-emotional processes for appropriate social interactions. Deficits in these processes can lead to maladjusted social behavior or even to aggressive or criminal behavior. ToM and empathy deficits have been found in different forensically relevant disorders, such as schizophrenia, pedophilia but especially in autism and psychopathy according to Hare. Most notably, autistic and psychopathic patients differ in their type of deficits and in their neuronal correlates. While autistic individuals lack the ability to take the perspective of others, psychopaths lack empathy. The aim of this article is to provide a better understanding of the pathophysiology of ToM and empathy deficits in forensically relevant disorders by reviewing and discussing the findings of neuroimaging and lesion studies and to highlight crucial implications for neuropsychotherapy according to Grawe.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectives: Illusory own-body perception (IOBPs) such as out of body experiences (OBEs) and
distortion of body parts have attracted most interest when reported by patients suffering cardiac
arrest and near death experiences, but they have also been reported to occur spontaneously in
patients with epilepsy or migraine, during dreams and have been induced by electrical stimulation
of the right temporoparietal junction (TPJ). However, the neurophysiological mechanisms involved
in such illusory body perceptions remain elusive. Until now there have been worldwide only three
patients, in which direct electrical stimulation of the cortex induced OBEs (for a review s. Ridder et
al. 2007, N Engl J Med). The aim of this study was therefore to investigate in a larger sample under
which conditions transcranial cortex stimulation can induce IOBPs.
Methods: In several experiments MRI-neuronavigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and
transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) were applied over specific brain regions in awake and
in sleeping subjects. Continuous EEG recording was used to verify different sleep stages and to
investigate neural correlates of IOBPs.
Results: Most remarkably, we found that only inhibition of the TPJ induced IOBPs in awake
subjects. Neither high-frequency TMS of the TPJ nor low-frequency TMS of a control site induced
such effects. Thus, our effects were area and frequency specific. Although none of our subjects
reported OBEs, low-frequency TMS of the TPJ could induce illusory own body perceptions such as
twitching sensations and illusory movements of body parts. Spectral EEG analyses revealed that
IOBPs could only be induced, if the deactivation of the TPJ was associated with the deactivation of
the frontopolar cortex.
Conclusions: Our data imply that the impairment of a temporoparietal and a frontal network is
necessary for IOBPs. In a further study we investigated the effects of tDCS during sleep on ownbody
perception in dream reports. Compared with sham stimulation, a significant decrease in the
subjective estimate of the amount of movements in the dream before awakening from REM sleep
was found only after inhibitory tDCS.
Discussion: These studies reveal novel approaches for probing the neurobiology of IOBPs in the
awake and the sleeping mind and might provide new insights in understanding the
pathophysiology of neuropsychiatric disorders associated with abnormal own-body perceptions.

Bilateral bi-cephalic tDCS with two active electrodes of the same polarity modulates bilateral cognitive processes differentially

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is an innovative method to explore the causal structure-function relationship of brain areas. We investigated the specificity of bilateral bi-cephalic tDCS with two active electrodes of the same polarity (e.g., cathodal on both hemispheres) applied to intraparietal cortices bilaterally using a combined between- and within-task approach. Regarding between-task specificity, we observed that bilateral bi-cephalic tDCS affected a numerical (mental addition) but not a control task (colour word Stroop), indicating a specific influence of tDCS on numerical but not on domain general cognitive processes associated with the bilateral IPS. In particular, the numerical effect of distractor distance was more pronounced under cathodal than under anodal stimulation. Moreover, with respect to within-task specificity we only found the numerical distractor distance effect in mental addition to be modulated by direct current stimulation, whereas the effect of target identity was not affected. This implies a differential influence of bilateral bi-cephalic tDCS on the recruitment of different processing components within the same task (number magnitude processing vs. recognition of familiarity). In sum, this first successful application of bilateral bi-cephalic tDCS with two active electrodes of the same polarity in numerical cognition research corroborates the specific proposition of the Triple Code Model that number magnitude information is represented bilaterally in the intraparietal cortices.

Effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation on body perception: No evidence for specificity of the right temporo-parietal junction
Publication year: 2016

https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10548-016-0496-0
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Previous data suggest that the right temporo-parietal junction (rTPJ) may have a specific role in abnormal body perception (ABP), including out-of-body experience. We tested this hypothesis with inhibitory (1 Hz) and excitatory (15 Hz) repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the rTPJ and a control site (CS, 5 cm posterior to the rTPJ along the lateral sulcus direction in Brodmann area 19R) in 35 healthy adults. ABP frequency was higher with 1 Hz than with 15 Hz rTMS but unaffected by the rTMS site (rTPJ/CS). Response to an own-body transformation task were delayed with 1 Hz compared to 15 Hz rTMS but also unaffected by rTMS site. ABP from rTMS at both sites induced electroencephalographic power decrease in all frequencies at left anterior and central cortical sites. Our data suggest that inhibitory rTMS can lead to ABP. However, the rTPJ may not play a specific role in this process.
