Social Embodiment in Virtual Reality

I work on an interdisciplinary study on social embodiment. This study aims to use virtual reality as a technology to explore the boundaries and limits of the body as experienced by the brain, most notably in social settings where multiple bodies are present and interacting. In virtual reality, characteristics of the virtual body inhabited by the user can be changed drastically, allowing for research on the range of forms and functions that can be used by the brain for effective communication. The findings will help to expand the understanding of how brain and body interact, for instance as applicable to the underlying mechanisms of empathy, or for the creation of effective virtual settings and companions.
