(opens in a new window)UCD Body Lab is located in the School of Psychology at University College Dublin and was established by Dr Sarah Cooney in 2022.

 Our research examines beliefs, perceptions, and attitudes toward the body. We are particularly interested in the link between body image, the internal bodily self (interoception), and well-being across the lifespan. Studies also examine the role of multisensory development and embodiment in learning.

 We use a mixed-method approach that includes psychophysical testing, virtual reality, and online data collection.
