NEWPORT, R. ... et al, 2016. The Anne Boleyn Illusion is a six-fingered salute to sensory remapping. i-Perception, 7 (5), pp. 1-4.
The Anne Boleyn Illusion exploits the somatotopic representation of touch to create the illusion of an extra digit and demonstrates the instantaneous remapping of relative touch location into body-based coordinates through visuo-tactile integration. Performed successfully on thousands, it is also a simple demonstration of the flexibility of body representations for use at public events, in schools or in the home and can be implemented anywhere by anyone with a mirror and some degree of bimanual coordination.
