Experimental Simulation of a Haunt Experience and Elicitation of Paroxysmal Electroencephalographic Activity by Transcerebral Complex Magnetic Fields: Induction of a Synthetic “Ghost”?
TLDR
The results of this experiment suggest that controlled simulation of these pervasive phenomena within the laboratory is possible and that this experimental protocol may help discern the physical stimuli that evoke their occurrence in nature.
BILINGUAL MEN BUT NOT WOMEN DISPLAY LESS LEFT EAR BUT NOT RIGHT EAR ACCURACY DURING DICHOTIC LISTENING COMPARED TO MONOLINGUALS
TLDR
The results are related to other studies that showed men who acquired English after the age of 5 years exhibited a relative weakness for verbal memory but not for figural memory compared to bilingual women or monolingual men and women.
NEUROBEHAVIORAL AND NEUROMETABOLIC (SPECT) CORRELATES OF PARANORMAL INFORMATION: INVOLVEMENT OF THE RIGHT HEMISPHERE AND ITS SENSITIVITY TO WEAK COMPLEX MAGNETIC FIELDS
TLDR
The results suggest that the phenomena attributed to paranormal or extrasensory processes are correlated quantitatively with morphological and functional anomalies involving the right parietotemporal cortices (or its thalamic inputs) and the hippocampal formation.
Enhanced hypnotizability by cerebrally applied magnetic fields depends upon the order of hemispheric presentation: an anistropic effect.
A significant alteration in the hypnotizability of normal subjects after brief (15 min) exposures to weak (1 microT) pulsed magnetic fields over the temporal lobes was determined by the serial order
Geophysical Variables and Behavior: XCVII. Increased Proportions of the Left-Sided Sense of Presence Induced Experimentally by Right Hemispheric Application of Specific (Frequency-Modulated) Complex
TLDR
The results suggest that the subjective lateralization of a sensed presence to the left during right hemispheric stimulation by weak magnetic fields is enhanced by the specific temporal structure of the applied field.
Remote Viewing with the Artist Ingo Swann: Neuropsychological Profile, Electroencephalographic Correlates, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Possible Mechanisms
TLDR
The results suggest that remote viewing may be enhanced by complex experimentally generated magnetic fields designed to interact with the neuromagnetic “binding facror” of consciousness.
Elevated Incidence of a Sensed Presence and Sexual Arousal during Partial Sensory Deprivation and Sensitivity to Hypnosis: Implications for Hemisphericity and Gender Differences
TLDR
Both sexes exhibited a significant association between the experience of a presence and sexual arousal in a setting that emphasized hypnosis and partial sensory deprivation.
Case report: A prototypical spontaneous ‘sensed presence’ of a sentient being and concomitant electroencephalographic activity in the clinical laboratory
TLDR
This case illustrates that many sensed presences might be similar to ‘epileptic auras’ for patients who also display elevated complex partial epileptic-like experiences following closed head injuries and that close attention to typically ignored electroencephalographic ‘transients’ may be helpful indicators.
Test-Retest Scores for Patients Who Display Neuropsychological Impairment following “Mild Head Injuries” from Mechanical Impacts
TLDR
The results indicated that the presumption of some neuropsychologists that patients with “mild head injury” have fully recovered within one year or will continue to improve after about one year following the incident may not be valid for all patients who sustain such brain trauma.
Personality not intelligence or educational achievement differentiate university students who access special needs for learning disabilities
University students who had been referred over a 3 year period from a special needs office because of putative learning disabilities were compared to randomly selected cohorts. There was no evidence
