Ventral premotor cortex may be required for dynamic changes in the feeling of limb ownership: a lesion study.

Abstract:

The feeling of "body ownership" may be experimentally investigated by perceptual illusions. The "rubber hand illusion" (RHI) leads human subjects to experience an artificial hand as their own. According to functional imaging, the ventral premotor cortex (PMv) plays a key role in the integration of multisensory inputs allowing the "incorporation" of the rubber hand into body representation. However, causal structure-function relationships can only be obtained by lesion studies. Here, we tested...
