The current thesis analyses the body misperception and alterations in multisensory integration in participants presenting with different levels of eating disorders symptoms. Body perception and multisensory integration processes are assessed using the Somatic Signal Detection Task (SSDT) which involves detecting very subtle tactile vibrations in the presence or absence of a concomitant light. Clinical implication are discussed.
