My research primarily involves investigations into a facility we all have called “reality monitoring”. This is the way we know whether something that we think just happened really happened or was just a figment of our imagination. I am interested in how this ability works or is impaired in different sorts of people – including those who have schizophrenia. I hope that my research will lead to new ways of diagnosing schizophrenia and even treating those hallucinations that disturb people.
