Abstract

To improve rehabilitation of the diseases which are caused by the mismatch between real body and body representation, it is necessary to understand the mechanism of body representation change. It is assumed that sense of agency and sense of ownership are closely-related with body representation and influence body representation change of the body parts without visual information. We focused on human upper limb and performed experiment with participants on four condition related to sensitivity of agency and ownership. We measure perceived position change of elbow and finger by pointing judgement using motion capture. Visual stimulation which participants given is only virtual hand. Our experiment has revealed that sense of agency influence the body representation change on the body parts which is invisible to participants.
