I am a research assistant in Dr. Rebecca Böhme's and Håkan Olausson's groups. My background is in cognitive neuroscience, and I am currently involved in several ongoing projects investigating touch and self-other distinction.
We investigate how the experience of “self” is generated by the brain and body – and what happens if self-other-distinction is altered in psychiatric conditions or through experimental interventions.
Human touch is a powerful way of evoking emotions. What is the functional significance of the system for ultrafast nociceptors that we recently discovered? How does the nervous system distinguish social and self-touch? Our lab is looking for answers.
Center for Social and Affective Neuroscience (CSAN) integrates knowledge and methodology from different areas of basic and clinical neuroscience.
What characterizes the Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences (BKV) is the wide breadth of research and education. BKV is one of the largest departments at LiU with affiliation mainly to the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.
