December 2023 submission closure: Please note that to accommodate reviewer and recommender holiday schedules, PCI RR will be closed to ALL submissions from 1st December 2023 until 10th January 2024. During this time, reviewers will remain able to submit reviews, and recommenders can issue decision letters for ongoing submissions, but no new or revised submissions can be made by authors.

We are recruiting recommenders (editors) from all research fields!

<p>Resizing illusions, delivered using augmented reality, resize a body part through either stretching or shrinking manipulations. These resizing illusions have been investigated in visuotactile, visual-only and visuo-auditory presentations. However, the neural underpinnings of these resizing illusions remain undefined. This study seeks to understand the neural mechanisms behind these illusions in healthy participants, by using somatosensory steady state evoked potentials in addition to subjective self-report questionnaires, to enhance knowledge of what drives the subjective embodiment during resizing illusions. Resizing Illusions have been shown to provide analgesic effects for individuals with chronic pain conditions, therefore, this study also aims to provide an empirical basis for later investigations in chronic pain samples undergoing resizing illusions. [results and conclusions to be added].&nbsp;</p>

No need for them to be recommenders of PCI Registered Reports. Please do not suggest reviewers for whom there might be a conflict of interest. Reviewers are not allowed to review preprints written by close colleagues (with whom they have published in the last four years, with whom they have received joint funding in the last four years, or with whom they are currently writing a manuscript, or submitting a grant proposal), or by family members, friends, or anyone for whom bias might affect the nature of the review - see the code of conduct
