​Elizabeth Schechter’s research focuses on the split-brain phenomenon, using it as a springboard for examining questions about the role of neural facts in psychological theorizing, the structure of consciousness, the nature of subjects of experience, and the intersection of folk and scientific psychology.

Elizabeth Schechter's current projects include a general theory of pretense, perspective in dramatic imagination, dissociative identity disorder, and the avowal of self-deception.
