MIRAGE task. The participant placed his/her right hand into the MIRAGE and saw two live video images of their hand. The veridical hand was in the same location as his/her actual hand; the displaced hand was immediately to the left or right of the veridical hand (position of the displaced hand was counterbalanced). In congruent conditions (a), the displaced hand had a temporal delay of either 60, 180 or 300 ms applied to it (asynchronous hand); the veridical hand did not (synchronous hand). In incongruent conditions (b), the veridical hand had a temporal delay of either 60, 180 or 300 ms applied to it (asynchronous hand); the displaced hand did not (synchronous hand). The arm is here uncovered for illustrative purposes, but it was covered in the experiment so that participants were unable to see the exact relationship between the limb and image
