Caption These movements were sent to the slave robot, which applied tactile stimuli in real time to the participants' backs. Participants moved the master robot for 3 min while they received tactile cues on their backs (by slave robot) and their right fingertips (by master robot). Stroking was applied either synchronously or asynchronously (500 ms delay), with or without somatosensory force feedback at the hand (2 3 2 factorial design). Credit Current Biology, Blanke et al.
