Cross Roads #7: Altered Experiences of Realities

Cross Roads #7: Altered Experiences of Realities

EVENT SUMMARY

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).

Thanks to everyone who came out on a very cold Friday night for the last Cross Roads of 2019, and a big thank you to Cross Compass and ELSI for hosting the event.
