Extending or projecting peripersonal space with tools? Multisensory interactions highlight only the distal and proximal ends of tools.
The effects of tool-use on the brain's representation of the body and of the space surrounding the body ('peripersonal space') has recently been studied within a number of disciplines in cognitive neuroscience, and is also of great interest to philosophers and behavioural ecologists.
