I am board certified in psychiatry and neurology. My interest in the brain and consciousness includes a fascination with anomalous experiences ( psychic abilities, out of body experiences, lucid dreaming, etc.) I have recently published a book which provides an alternative model of understanding the brain and consciousness. It regards these phenomena as clues, rather than ignoring them because they don't fit into the current model. My book is entitled The ESP Enigma and can be found on Amazon. You can learn more about me and my book from my website.
