Dissociating body image and body schema with rubber hands
Holmes NP., Spence C.
Dijkerman & de Haan (D & dH) argue that body image and body schema form parts of different and dissociable somatosensory streams. We agree in general, but believe that more emphasis should be placed on interactions between these two streams. We illustrate this point with evidence from the rubber-hand illusion (RHI) - an illusion of body image, which depends critically upon body schema. © 2007 Cambridge University Press.
