How do we know what is real? From hallucinations to false memories, our brains can fool us into perceiving things that are not "out there" in the world. I am interested in the processes that give rise to these perceptual and cognitive distortions known as altered states of consciousness. Specifically, my research focuses on the neural dynamics of the sleep onset period and what is commonly referred to as the hypnagogic state.
