Rubber Hand Illusion

This lesson introduces how the brain interprets information obtained from our sensory system. Humans have more than 5 familiar senses (sight, touch, smell, hear, and taste) and the ability to integrate these multisensory information is a key to the sense of body ownership, known as proprioception. Proprioception, or the sense of where our body is in space, both during stillness and movement, is directly related to self-consciousness.  The students will experience the perturbation of their proprioception  through the activity and their sense of sight overriding their sense of touch. Our brains are not “static” per se.
