Cognitive correlates of the out-of-body experience and hallucinations of self-reduplication
A project to investigate the behavioural and neural apsects underlying fascinating hallucinatory experiences in the non-clinical population. A particular emphasis will be placed on hallucinations of self-reduplication including (though not restricted to) - the out-of-body experience (OBEs) and sensed-presence experiences (SPEs).
Methods will include the use of cognitive experiments (E-prime / Matlab) to glean behavioural data (reaction times / accuracy) coupled to modern neuroscience techniques (EEG / TMS and possibly fMRI).
Self-funded students only.

There are a number of currently open competitive studentship schemes at the University of Birmingham, and students are welcome to discuss their eligibility for these with the supervisor or the PG Admissions Tutor.
