Disorders of body representation have been described for eating disordered as well as for stroke patients, but a lot of features of these distortions remain unknown. In my interdisciplinary PhD project, I use virtual reality and biometric avatars to investigate body perception in different patient populations. Specifically, I work with anorexia nervosa patients and with stroke patients.

In both populations, patients and age-matched healthy controls shall be confronted with avatars that are gradually distorted in relevant dimensions and they have to judge whether the avatar matches themselves or not. The results will be complemented by clinical examinations and well-documented assessment methods from the particular field.

Associated Research Groups: Max-Planck Institute for biological Cybernetics, Space and Perception Lab (PhD Betty Mohler); Max-Planck-Institute for intelligent systems, Dpt. Perceiving Systems (Prof. Michael Black/Dr. Stephan Streuber), University Hospital Tuebingen, Dpt. of Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy (Prof. Stephan Zipfel, Dr. Katrin Giel)  and Dpt. of Neuropsychology (Prof. Hans-Otto Karnath).
