Virtual reality has been used to simulate altered conscious experiences, e.g. the out-of-body experience, synesthesia, autistic perceptions etc. In this talk, I will introduce a series of our researches using virtual reality to explore disrupted experiences of reality, such as visual hallucinations, illusions of bodily-self, and delusions. I will also discuss possible mechanisms underlying those different types of experiences realities (Perceptual Reality, Embodied Reality, and Belief of Reality).
