Out-of-body experience is brain playing tricks on you31st October 2011
Researchers from Edinburgh and Cambridge who carried out a review have said out-of-body experiences could be the brain trying to make sense of death.
Many patients who have had near-death experiences have reported feeling as if they left their bodies or travelled down a tunnel. However researcher Dr Caroline Watt said: "The most parsimonious explanation is not that you are travelling to some spiritual realm – it is simply your brain trying to make sense of the unusual experiences you are having. The scientific evidence suggests that all aspects of the near-death experience have a biological basis."
