Research: Vicarious tactile experiences on an embodied avatar: neurofunctional evidences for a vicarious somatosensory tactile homunculus

During my previous research experiences I investigated Joint Actions from both a behavioural and a neurofunctional perspective. In particular, I examined how neurocognitive processes involved in actions observation and execution are modulated by context’s interactivity.
My current research project is aimed to investigate the neurocognitive processes of social and intimate touch combining Virtual Reality and fMRI.
