DB was supported by PSI2014-56301-R Ser Einstein: La Influencia de Internalizar un Cuerpo Virtual en la Inteligencia, Ministerio de Economía, Industria y Competitividad of Spain. This work was also supported by the Virtual Embodiment and Robotic Re-Embodiment (VERE) Integrated Project funded under the European Seventh Framework Programme, Future and Emerging Technologies, Grant Agreement 257695. We thank Torsten Marquardt for his help with the experimental design, Professor Mark Huckvale for his help with the design of the the auditory stimuli and for provinding the real-time voice-transformation system and Andrea Yeung for her assistance with the vocal production analysis.”
