Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, CB1 1PT

‘Generating the Foundations of Self’ is an interactive and immersive exhibition showcasing the work of the Self & Body Lab at Anglia Ruskin University. The exhibition explores how the foundations of the sense of self are generated by looking at the different aspects of what makes me ‘me’.

Through an interactive exploration of the different methodologies and tools used in research, you will learn more about how stimuli from outside of the body and stimuli from inside of the body [heart, gut etc.] contribute to our sense of self, as well as how disruptions to our sense of self may impact our experience of our bodies during dreaming.

Facilitators Matt Gwyther, Utkarsh Gupta and Jennifer Todd are part of the Self and Body Lab in the School of Psychology and Sport Science at Anglia Ruskin University. Their research considers questions such as: What is a Self? How does our brain generate the conscious experiencer of our lives? What is the relation between the physical self - the body - and the mental self?
