The Rubber Hand Illusion (RHI) creates distortions of body ownership through multimodal integration of somatosensory and visual inputs. This illusion largely rests on bottom-up (automatic multisensory and perceptual integration) mechanisms.

Background: The link between aggressivity, prosocial behavior, and subjective fatigue remains unclear. We believe that: (a) compassion, helping intentions and donating behavior should all be lower when aggressiveness (trait, explicit, and implicit variants) is higher; and (b) subjective fatigue should moderate the relationships between these variab...

To this end, in Study 1, participants reported on self-concept clarity (SCC) and completed the rubber hand illusion...

Background: Bronchial challenge testing (BCT) measures airway hyperresponsiveness; asthma guidelines recommend using BCT when symptoms manifest despite normal spirometry. Improper application of these guidelines commonly results in the misdiagnosis of asthma. Yet, statistics concerning BCT remain largely obscure. The current paper addresses this g...
Article
Identifying what makes some people respond well to placebos remains a major challenge. Here, we attempt to replicate an earlier study in which we found a relationship between hypnotic suggestibility and subjective ratings of relaxation following the ingestion of a placebo sedative (Sheiner, Lifshitz, & Raz, 2016). To assess the reliability of this...
