Perceptual reality monitoring: Neural mechanisms dissociating imagination from reality (twitter thread)

Increasing evidence shows that internally generated experience e.g. memory, dreaming and imagery, relies on similar neural mechanisms as externally triggered perception. This overlap complicates perceptual reality monitoring: deciding what is real and what is imagined. In this review, we explored how perceptual reality monitoring might be implemented in the brain.
