Peoc'h, Rene - - 2002
Starting in 1980, the author has been conducting PK experiments using a system called the tychoscope, which was originally invented by the French engineer Pierre Janin (1977). The tychoscope is a small, self-propelled "vehicle," or robot, which integrates a random event generator (REG). The tychoscope movements are thus determined by ...

Following on results reported at last year's PA convention, exploratory logistic regression analyses were conducted to uncover relationships between specific predictor variables and claims of subjective ESP experiences (S-ESP) among 100 neuropsychiatric patients of Neppe. Eliminating those who claimed S-ESP only rarely left an S-ESP group (n = 53) to ...

This paper forms part of a PhD thesis on media and the paranormal that aims to develop awareness of psychic phenomena within the public domain. It attempts to explore the linkage between the multiplicity of sociocultural debates around this subject as well as the relationship between its public representation and ...

In 1979, Jule Eisenbud complained of those who dismissed evidence for phenomena such as D. D. Home's levitations by consigning it to the "innocuous past." For the Victorians, however, such evidence was not in the past and was therefore far from innocuous. There was, at the same time, a debate ...

Random number generator-PK (RNG-PK) experiments have tended to use the continuous influence of participants in normal states of consciousness, in contrast with the early PK experiments with dice. Cognitive disturbance, ownership inhibition, and lack of transparency of computer programs might play a role in the lack of reproducibility of RNG-PK ...
Herbert, Cornelia - - 2002
This study aims to evaluate the usability of the so-called startle eye-blink modification paradigm for studies of telepathy. Telepathic connections most frequently are experienced between emotionally intimate persons--lovers, parents, children--and are often observed in the context of existential life situations such as divorce, separation, danger, or death. In the form ...

Sleep paralysis (SP) is a benign sleep disorder that involves the frightening experience of being unable to move at sleep onset or upon awakening, often accompanied by hypnagogic or hypnopompic hallucinations. While sleep paralysis is one of the symptoms of narcolepsy, it also occurs in normal individuals (incidence estimates vary ...
Dalkvist, Jan - - 2002
Using computer simulations, the authors showed that experiments aimed at demonstrating "presentiment" by showing arousal to be higher before arousing stimuli than before calm stimuli presented in a randomised (with replacement) order run the risk of being afflicted with a computational bias. The bias is based on the (false) expectation ...

About half of all individuals who survive a lite-threatening situation react with horror and fear and go on to develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which is characterized by nightmares, flashbacks, anxiety, and other psychiatric symptoms like depression and substance abuse. A quarter of trauma survivors have a near-death experience and ...

Over the years researchers have noted that children have the same types and frequency of psi phenomena as adults, and thus they often wondered if age was a possible factor in psi ability. Many experiments were conducted in past decades to test children, and schools often were used for participant ...
Bierman, Dick - - 2002
This study examined the neural substrates of anticipation in conjunction with functional magnetic resonance imaging. Ten participants were scanned while 48 pictures were presented. Each stimulus sequence started with the 4.2-s presentation of a fixation point before and during which the anticipation was measured. After the exposure of the stimulus ...

For decades now, scientists have been examining the relationship between psychic (psi) phenomena and the human brain. As technology has advanced, more sophisticated methods have been used to study both the brain and psi phenomena. The advancement of technology has improved our understanding of how psi phenomena are mediated by ...

Milton, Julie - - 2002
Storm and Ertel (2001) published a meta-analysis of 79 ganzfeld studies published between 1974 and 1996. They used substantially inconsistent inclusion criteria to form the database and included studies with well-documented methodological problems. Using a methodological quality scale that omitted important items such as the use of duplicate target sets, ...

Chibnall, Jeral, and Cerullo argued that research on distant intercessory prayer assumes intervention by a supernatural being and does not meet the basic requirements for science of having explanatory relevance and being testable. They believed that this research will not be successful because it is "attempting to validate God through ...
Steinkamp, Fiona - - 2002
Two studies were conducted on the World Wide Web to replicate the author's previous findings (Steinkamp, 1998). The first study examined whether participants who reported a positive reaction to filling Out a questionnaire subsequently fared better on the psi task. Despite the higher power, the experiment failed to provide significant ...
Watt, Caroline - - 2002
Eighty individuals took part in a study in which a single experimenter made either psi-supportive or psi-unsupportive suggestions prior to administering questionnaire measures and a psi task. The psi task was remote facilitation of attention focusing, with the dependent variable the participant's self-reported number of distractions during Help epochs compared ...
Sherwood, Simon - - 2002
A range of anomalous experiences has been reported during the borderline hypnagogic or hypnopompic states that surround periods of sleep. The question is whether these states are conducive to anomalous processes or agencies, whether normal features are being misinterpreted, or both. This article outlines the main physiological and psychological features ...
Alvarado, Carlos - - 2002
There are many problems in the contemporary study of spontaneous cases in parapsychology. The main one is the low number of research projects in the area. A specialty that conducts little research has no possibility of developing as a science and has little impact on society. Also, better balance is ...
