This chapter examines functional and neural signatures of body ownership by controlling whether an external object was accepted as part of the body or not. The results of a series of experiments suggest that body ownership during the rubber hand illusion (RHI) arises as an interaction between multisensory perception and top-down influences originating from an abstract cognitive model of the body. The findings also indicate that the effects of multisensory integration and recalibration of hand position are correlated with activity in the right posterior insula.

Keywords:   body ownership, functional signatures, neural signatures, RHI, multisensory perception, cognitive model, multisensory integration, posterior insula
