Your dream-body: All an illusion? Commentary on Windt’s account of the dream-body in dreaming

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Bodily experience in dreams should be considered illusory (rather than hallucinatory) to the extent that they cannot be satisfactorily explained or fruitfully investigated by appealing to brain activity alone; rather, to wholly understand the unique phenomenology of embodied selfhood in dreams, one must understand how the brain processes real-body inputs to produce the phenomenology of embodied selfhood in dreams, and why the brain responds the way it does to external stimuli during sleep. (Windt, 2015, p. 388).
