A Phenomenological and Neurophysiological Investigation
Supervisors and Advisors: Prof M Berk, Dr A Anderson, Prof R

Description: This research, conducted jointly at Melbourne University
and the University of Cambridge has explored the perception of time and

as a dissociative agent and in patients with bipolar disorder. It also utilised
neuroimaging by fMRI and EEG
