Out of Body Experiences and the Brain

Out of Body Experiences and the Brain

Doctors in Belgium have reported about an unusual patient. He’s a 63-year-old man suffering from severe ringing in the ear. What the doctors did was they implanted electrodes in the man’s brain to cure the ringing. The electrodes provided no relief for the ringing, but they did cause the man to have a so-called out of body experience. The doctors used a special scan called a PET scan to take images of the brain while the man was having this so-called out of body experience. They found that an area of the superior temporal cortex, the area on the side of the head near the top (it’s believed to be important for self-perception) was active during these out of body experiences. So what they believe is they’ve been able to figure out a part of the body that may contribute to the issue.
