Advances in parapsychological research; v.9

BF1031

Krippner (psychology, Saybrook U.), Rock, Beischel, Friedman, and Fracasso bring together a group of psychologists, philosophers, neuroscientists, and mental health practitioners from the US, Europe, and Australia, who present nine essays detailing advances in parapsychological research. Essays detail the contributions of psychiatrist Jule Eisenbud; a research project on the effects of group consciousness on electronic random event generators; dream ESP studies; the importance of theory-driven research and the theories of psychopraxia, mediated instrumental response, and synchronicity; Bayesian and quantum modeling approaches to analyzing evidence of ESP with participants in the Ganzfeld state; the application of consciousness to parapsychology; physiological studies that investigate parapsychology at the unconscious level; the anomalies associated with distant healing; and expanding parapsychology research and knowledge.
