1 | Peripersonal Neurons
Several areas of the brain monitor your personal space—also called the peripersonal space (PPS). The peripersonal neurons each monitor one small “bubble” of our PPS.
- Michael Graziano explains Peripersonal Neurons (episode 142 from the Brain Science podcast)
- The Spaces Between Us: A Story of Neuroscience, Evolution, and Human Nature (Graziano’s book)
- Peripersonal space in the brain (nice review article from the journal Neuropsychologia)
- Illusion makes people ‘feel’ force field around their body (article from New Scientist)
