Out Of Body Experience Examined in MRI

I should think this research could have implications beyond OOBEs, and impact our understanding of NDEs as well as effects of substances like DMT.

From an article on PopSci.com

After a class on out-of-body experiences, a psychology graduate student at the University of Ottawa came forward to researchers to say that she could have these voluntarily, usually before sleep. “She appeared surprised that not everyone could experience this,” wrote the scientists in a study describing the case, published in February in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.

She was able to see herself rotating in the air above her body, lying flat, and rolling along with the horizontal plane. She reported sometimes watching herself move from above but remained aware of her unmoving “real” body. The participant reported no particular emotions linked to the experience.

[There] are fascinating suggestions–both that these out-of-body experiences may be more common than previously thought, or could be learned during a critical window early in life.

To better understand what was going on, the researchers conducted a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study of her brain. They found that it surprisingly involved a “strong deactivation of the visual cortex.” Instead, the experience “activated the left side of several areas associated with kinesthetic imagery,” such as mental representations of bodily movement.

Her experience, the scientists wrote, “really was a novel one.” But just maybe, not as novel as previously thought. If you are capable of floating out of your body, don’t keep it to yourself!

Fascinating and frightening. I wonder to what extent we should delve into the concept of consciousness especially when you consider that every monster and demon and horror Humanity has ever conceived has come from that source. What lies waiting for us in the dark recesses of our own consciousness?

I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

    I wonder if they did some little tests to prove if she was actually having an out of body experience or if she was imagining it. For example they could have put a sign on top of the MRI machine with numbers or words that she could have confirmed after “returning.” It would have been extremely simple.

    I wonder that sort of thing as well. Nothing in any of the articles about it.
