Imaging studies of structural and functional/effective connectivity in the hallucinating brain has provided evidence for the notion that the neurobiological mechanisms underlying hallucinations and their complex and diverse phenomenology cannot be understood solely in terms of localised structural and functional abnormalities.

Abstract

Imaging studies of structural and functional/effective connectivity in the hallucinating brain has provided evidence for the notion that the neurobiological mechanisms underlying hallucinations and their complex and diverse phenomenology cannot be understood solely in terms of localised structural and functional abnormalities. Connectivity impairment has become central to a number of contemporary neurobiological theories of hallucinations, including those which focus on brain networks implicated in attention and perception, language, and self-monitoring. In this chapter we review the relevant functional and structural neuroimaging literature and discuss the limitations of the currently available methods as well as the main challenges for future research on the hallucinating brain.
