My PhD project focuses on understanding the neurophysiological basis of first rank symptoms of psychosis (hallucinations and delusions). More specifically, I am interested in how individuals experience control and ownership during such phenomena and how the brain processes this. In addition, my research takes the novel approach of using hypnotic suggestion to model first rank symptoms in healthy individuals.
