The neuroscience of out-of-body experiences

Wednesday 20 March: 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, CB1 1PT

Out-of-body experiences have been reported by people for millennia, usually in association with near-death experiences. Although regarded by some as evidence that the self is immaterial and can leave the physical body, neuroscientists now have an explanation for the brain bases of these bizarre experiences. Dr Jane Aspell, Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Anglia Ruskin University, will discuss the latest scientific explanations of these intriguing phenomena, and will explain why the science of OBEs can help us understand how the brain creates a ‘self’.
