Acknowledging the fact that Google delivers personalized results, I am fairly sure a Google search for "heautoscopy" will deliver you bucket loads of papers to read - I have copied a random handful for your convenience below under 'further reading'. However, a popular source seems to contradict your definition, as it states heautoscopy as being: A ...

From the retina, visual signals next travel through the lateral geniculate nucleus of the thalamus. This nucleus is quite centrally located, about as much in the middle of the brain as possible, and much much more ancient (evolutionarily, and developmentally) than the folded outer part of the brain that is highly recognizable in humans. This entire folded ...

The semantic N400 and syntactic P600 are some of the most well established ERP components in the literature. They were discovered decades ago and the results have been replicated hundreds of times in other papers. There is just no question that they are present and very robust. That's not saying they are there 100% of the time in 100% of people. All we know ...

There's a lot to unpack here, but maybe a good place to start is looking at the difference between an action potential and a brainwave. An action potential is the abrupt change in voltage of a single neuron in response to a pre-synaptic stimulus. Brainwaves are measured by EEG. They represent the sum of many neurons' activity. If I understand the gist of ...

The EEG (or Local Field Potential - LFP) is the result of currents flowing in and out of every neuron in the brain. As this current flows, a dipole is created which creates an electric field - this is what is measured at the electrode. There are details in this excellent review. It is true that neurons tend to fire synchronously during epochs of oscillations ...

I don't think it's foolish. If you want to make the switch, I'd look into BS-requiring lab tech jobs in labs doing things you are interested in, and trying to apply for graduate school in a year or two if that works out well. These are jobs that recently-graduated students often do for a year or two while strengthening an application for graduate school, ...
