Publication alert!

We are happy to share the news that a paper by our lab member, Piotr Szymanek, along with Matylda Ciołkosz, has just been published in the Journal for the Cognitive Science of Religion!

In the paper, Piotr and Matylda analyze the practice of deity yoga in Tibetan buddhist and come to the conclusion that visualization involved in the practice might trigger an experience of illusory ownership. This underlying cognitive mechanism can reinforce practitioner's belief that they have become one with a visualized deity!
