Your Brain Hallucinates your Conscious Reality

Right now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience — and not just any conscious experience, your experience of the world around you and of yourself within it. How does this happen? Neuroscientist Anil Seth, explains why we’re all ‘hallucinating’ all the time; when we agree about our hallucinations, we call it “reality.”

Our understanding about how the brain ‘constructs’ or ‘predicts’ reality incliding bodily sensation and movement have allowed us to understand how FND may be a disorder that occurs when that process of prediction goes wrong.
