Rubber hand illusion highlights massive visual capture and sensorimotor face-hand remapping in a tetraplegic man (2014)
Journal Article
Tidoni, E., Grisoni, L., Liuzza, M. T., & Aglioti, S. M. (2014). Rubber hand illusion highlights massive visual capture and sensorimotor face-hand remapping in a tetraplegic man. Restorative Neurology and Neuroscience, 32(5), 611-622. https://doi.org/10.3233/RNN-130385

Purpose: The illusory ownership of a fake hand as part the body follows synchronous tactile stimulation over a visible rubber hand and a covered hand. Whether brain plasticity mechanisms after sensory and motor disconnection modulates this illusion r... Read More

Illusory movements induced by tendon vibration in right- and left-handed people (2014)
Journal Article
Tidoni, E., Fusco, G., Leonardis, D., Frisoli, A., Bergamasco, M., & Aglioti, S. M. (2015). Illusory movements induced by tendon vibration in right- and left-handed people. Experimental Brain Research, 233(2), 375-383. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00221-014-4121-8

Frequency-specific vibratory stimulation of peripheral tendons induces an illusion of limb movement that may be useful for restoring proprioceptive information in people with sensorimotor disability. This potential application may be limited by inter... Read More

Audio-visual feedback improves the BCI performance in the navigational control of a humanoid robot (2014)
Journal Article
Tidoni, E., Gergondet, P., Kheddar, A., & Aglioti, S. M. (2014). Audio-visual feedback improves the BCI performance in the navigational control of a humanoid robot. Frontiers in Neurorobotics, 8(JUN), https://doi.org/10.3389/fnbot.2014.00020

Advancement in brain computer interfaces (BCI) technology allows people to actively interact in the world through surrogates. Controlling real humanoid robots using BCI as intuitively as we control our body represents a challenge for current research... Read More

Rubber hand illusion induced by touching the face ipsilaterally to a deprived hand: evidence for plastic "somatotopic" remapping in tetraplegics (2014)
Journal Article
Scandola, M., Tidoni, E., Avesani, R., Brunelli, G., Aglioti, S. M., & Moro, V. (2014). Rubber hand illusion induced by touching the face ipsilaterally to a deprived hand: evidence for plastic "somatotopic" remapping in tetraplegics. Frontiers in human neuroscience, 8(JUNE), https://doi.org/10.3389/fnhum.2014.00404

Background: Studies in animals and humans indicate that the interruption of body-brain connections following spinal cord injury (SCI) leads to plastic cerebral reorganization. Objective: To explore whether inducing the Rubber Hand Illusion (RHI) via... Read More
