Katerina Fotopoulou’s current research projects focus on the psychological and neural mechanisms by which our interoceptive sensations, as well as multimodal representations of the body, are influenced by internalised social expectations, on-line interactions with other people and by neuropeptides known to enhance social feelings. These studies point to unique neural mechanisms by which our bodies are interpersonally ‘mentalised’ and perceived to form the basis of our selves.
