CenSes Workshop: Sensation of Movement

01 May 2015, 10:00 - 18:00

Venue: Room G34 (Ground Floor), Senate House

This is a one-day workshop organised by our collaborators at the University of Copenhagen, Mark Schram Christiansen and Thor Grünbaum.

Sensation of one’s own movements depends on a plethora of information ranging from signalling in peripheral sensory organs to establishment of higher order goals for one’s movements. But whether one type of information is more relevant for the ability to sense and control movements and accomplish specific goals with ease and grace is not known. With this workshop we encourage the integration of neuroscientific knowledge with psychological and philosophical perspectives, in order to arrive at new insights into how sensation of movement can be studied scientifically. By combining knowledge from different fields of research, we hope that the workshop will inspire to study new aspects of sensation of movement, which previously has not been addressed.
