Proprioceptive drift without illusions of ownership for rotated hands in the "rubber hand illusion" paradigm (2011)
Journal Article
Holle, H., McLatchie, N., Maurer, S., & Ward, J. (2011). Proprioceptive drift without illusions of ownership for rotated hands in the "rubber hand illusion" paradigm. Cognitive neuroscience, 2(3-4), (171-178). doi:10.1080/17588928.2011.603828. ISSN 1758-8928

The rubber hand illusion is one reliable way to experimentally manipulate the experience of body ownership. However, debate continues about the necessary and sufficient conditions eliciting the illusion. We measured proprioceptive drift and the subje... Read More

Imitation and observational learning of hand actions: prefrontal involvement and connectivity (2011)
Journal Article
Higuchi, S., Holle, H., Roberts, N., Eickhoff, S. B., & Vogt, S. (2012). Imitation and observational learning of hand actions: prefrontal involvement and connectivity. NeuroImage, 59(2), 1668-1683. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neuroimage.2011.09.021

The first aim of this event-related fMRI study was to identify the neural circuits involved in imitation learning. We used a rapid imitation task where participants directly imitated pictures of guitar chords. The results provide clear evidence for t... Read More

What iconic gesture fragments reveal about gesture-speech integration: when synchrony is lost, memory can help. (2011)
Journal Article
Obermeier, C., Gunter, T. C., & Holle, H. (2011). What iconic gesture fragments reveal about gesture-speech integration: when synchrony is lost, memory can help. Journal of cognitive neuroscience, 23(7), 1648-1663. doi:10.1162/jocn.2010.21498

The present series of experiments explores several issues related to gesture-speech integration and synchrony during sentence processing. To be able to more precisely manipulate gesture-speech synchrony, we used gesture fragments instead of complete... Read More

That's not a real body: identifying stimulus qualities that modulate synaesthetic experiences of touch (2011)
Journal Article
Holle, H., Banissy, M., Wright, T., Bowling, N., & Ward, J. (2011). That's not a real body: identifying stimulus qualities that modulate synaesthetic experiences of touch. Consciousness and cognition, 20(3), (720-726). doi:10.1016/j.concog.2010.12.002. ISSN 1053-8100

Mirror-touch synaesthesia is a condition where observing touch to another's body induces a subjective tactile sensation on the synaesthetes body. The present study explores which characteristics of the inducing stimulus modulate the synaesthetic touc... Read More
