Dr. Holly Pollard-Wright is a veterinarian and independent researcher: Full Member with the National Coalition of Independent Scholars (NCIS) and an Associate Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). As an independent researcher, part of her work involves creating theories that seek to explain such mysteries as to why the ‘reality’ an individual perceives and what one thinks they perceive often do not correspond and include the mind-body problem (i.e., matter/consciousness duality). Her articles are works of non-fiction that include the discussion of emotional dysregulation and interoceptive abnormalities; however, Dr. Pollard-Wright is not a medical professional for humans rather animals. Unless otherwise noted, she makes no explicit guarantees as to the accuracy of the articles’ information. In some cases, the names of people and places have been altered to protect their privacy.
