Die Gummihand-Illusion

Netter, wenn auch ein wenig kurzer Clip zum Phänomen der Rubber Hand Illusion. Aus dem englischsprachigen Wikipedia:

In the rubber hand illusion (RHI) (Botvinick & Cohen, 1998), human participants view a dummy hand being stroked with a paintbrush, while they feel a series of identical brushstrokes applied to their own hand, which is hidden from view. If this visual and tactile information is applied synchronously, and if the visual appearance and position of the dummy hand is similar to one’s own hand, then people may feel that the touches on their own hand are coming from the dummy hand, and even that the dummy hand is, in some way, their own hand. This is an early form of body transfer illusion. The RHI is an illusion of vision, touch, and posture (proprioception), but a similar illusion can also be induced with touch and proprioception (Ehrsson, Holmes, & Passingham, 2005). The very first report of this kind of illusion may have been as early as 1937 (Tastevin, 1937)

Schon krass, wie leicht wir uns doch von unserer Psyche aufs Korn nehmen lassen können.
