NOMIS researcher and Distinguished Scientist Award winner Professor Manos Tsakiris talks about how our bodies are represented in our brains and how neurocognitive mechanisms shape our physical experiences in his TEDxGhent talk. Prof. Tsakiris discusses his research investigating the plasticity of the sense of self – specifically, how the changing body influences our sense of self and how this new sense of self affects others.
Prof. Tsakiris is professor of psychology at the Department of Psychology, Royal Holloway, University of London. He won the first-ever NOMIS Distinguished Scientist Award in 2016.
