The preprint of the results of a new study is now online. In this study, I used TMS to investigate the role of two brain areas in the control of object lifting and the perception of object weight. You can find the preprint on BioRxiv.

The article on the size–weight illusion in virtual reality from earlier this year has now been published in Scientific Reports. As previously described, we demonstrate that size has much less influence on how heavy an object feels, if the size and weight are simultaneously changed after lifting the object. You can check a video of the experiment on my Twitter account.

Our latest preprint is now on bioRxiv. We demonstrate that size has much less influence on how heavy an object feels, if the size and weight are simultaneously changed after lifting the object.

One of my recent papers has now been published in Neuropsychologia. When lifting an object, force planning is based on previous experience. Here we show this information is acquired during the dynamic lifting of objects, not during the static holding phase.

I will present my results on the contribution of the motor cortex to force planning on Monday 25 February in Vancouver, Canada, during the 3rd International Brain Stimulation Conference. If you are there, come have a look!

Check our latest publication on multisensory integration in object lifting online! In this study we show that a visual delay influences the way you lift an object and how heavy it feels.

Recently, I have placed two preprints on bioRxiv, on sensory information in object lifting. The first article shows the importance of the dynamic phase in storing information of lifting experience. The second article is about the contribution of haptic and visual information in object lifting and weight perception. Both experiments were performed using our nice virtual reality setup!
