By

Authors Scandola M, Aglioti SM, Bonente C, Avesani R, Moro V. Abstract Peripersonal space (PPS) is the space surrounding us within which we interact with objects.

By

Authors Michele Scandola, Emmanuele Tidoni, Renato Avesani, Giovanni Brunelli,Salvatore M. Aglioti and Valentina Moro Abstract Background: Studies in animals and humans indicate that the interruption of body-brain connections following spinal cord injury (SCI) leads to plastic cerebral reorganization.
