The Early Career Hallucination Research (ECHR) group is part of the International Consortium on Hallucination Research (ICHR), and led by Ben Alderson-Day (Durham, UK) and Cassie Hazell (University of Westminster, UK).

We are open to anyone who is actively conducting research on hallucinations or unusual sensory experiences and considers themselves to be at an “early career” stage.  The group has over 100 members based in 14 different countries, and ranges from graduate research assistants through to lecturers in their first permanent position.

We hold regular online meetings and have a Slack space for group members to share papers, materials, and ideas.


Our ECHR 2019 Meeting was held in Durham on on September 10th, 2019.
