Research title
Disentangling top-down from bottom-up contributions to dissociation experiences under the influence of sub-anesthetic dose of Ketamine.


Research project

Ketamine is known to induce dissociation experiences which affect subjects' perceptual experiences and their sense of agency. It is currently unknown if these stem from effects on bottom-up or top-down mechanism. In a psycho-pharmacological experiment with healthy volunteers that will take either Ketamine or a placebo, we will assess the relative contribution of these two systems, using a task that contrast them experimentally.
