Scientific Research Meets Limb Difference

Scientific research meets limb difference with Scientific Research for the Limb Difference Community. This is a very exciting concept offering the opportunity for the scientific community to work with the limb difference community in a whole variety of ways that can benefit both.

This site was established by a research group located in the Department of Psychology and School of Computer Science & Electronic Engineering at University of Essex (UK) working in the fields of psychology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence & robotics with the great passion of learning about humans and their abilities.

Read on for more information about this innovative development which has taken much thought, commitment and hard work to realise.

A place for exchanging ideas and new research findings in the fields of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Artificial Intelligence


  • Are you a person aged 18 years or older, with or without limb difference?
  • Are you interested in understanding more about living in a world with limb difference?
  • Would you like to help the scientific and limb difference communities by participating in our research projects?Are you looking for an online platform where to find scientific articles on limb difference research and post your questions?

If you answered YES to any of the questions above, visit our new Scientific Research for the Limb Difference Community website: https://sites.google.com/view/research-for-limb-difference for more information and sign up to participate in our studies!

We are a dedicated research group based at the University of Essex who wants to create a dialogue between the limb difference and scientific communities. Our scientific research revolves around understanding the role of bodily experiences (e.g. touch perception, movement) and their loss in developing mental images of our own self and of other people. Through novel research studies, we hope to better understand the experience of living with limb difference, leading the way for further cutting-edge research in multi-disciplinary scientific research fields. In addition, we also look forward to knowing what questions people with limb difference may have that could direct scientific research in the future.

Visit our website to browse our currently available research studies and become a participant, check some interesting scientific papers regarding the limb difference community, and post questions and topics that you would like to see addressed by the scientific research in the future.
We look forward to you joining our Community and seeing where Scientific Research Meets Limb Difference!
