New research on gay out of body experiences

A new study suggests these “out-of-body” and “near-death” experiences may be influenced by a portion of the brain misfiring under stress.

The paper, which describes one patient’s visions while she was being evaluated for epilepsy, does not wrestle with issues of the soul.

Nor, researchers said, do the brain-mapping results entirely explain these strange reports.

The researchers point to a processing center in the brain known as the angular gyrus. The angular gyrus is thought to play an important role in the way the brain analyzes sensory information to give us a perception of our own bodies. When it misfires, they speculate, the result can be visions of floating outside of ourselves.

Why this news is featured on a gay & lesbian website, I don’t know, but the reporter is hot!
