We report a meta-analysis of forced-choice precognition experiments published in the English-language parapsychological literature between 1935 and 1987. These studies involve attempts by subjects to predict the identity of target stimuli selected randomly over intervals ranging from several hundred milli­ seconds to one year following the subjects' responses. We retrieved 309 studies reported by 62 investigators. Nearly two million individual trials were contributed by more than 50,000…

Effects of Consciousness on the Fall of Dice: A Meta-Analysis
This article presents a meta-analysis of experiments testing the hypothesis that consciousness (in particular, mental intention) can cause tossed dice to land with specified targets face up.
Feeling the future: A meta-analysis of 90 experiments on the anomalous anticipation of random future events.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of 90 experiments from 33 laboratories in 14 countries which yielded an overall effect greater than 6 sigma is reported, concluding that the database is not significantly compromised by either selection bias or by " p-hacking"-the selective suppression of findings or analyses that failed to yield statistical significance.
Feeling the future: A meta-analysis of 90 experiments on the anomalous anticipation of random future events
TLDR
A meta-analysis of 90 experiments from 33 laboratories in 14 countries which yielded an overall effect greater than 6 sigma is reported, indicating that the database is not significantly compromised by either selection bias or by intense “ p-hacking”—the selective suppression of findings or analyses that failed to yield statistical significance.
Anomalous Perception: An Umbrella Review of the Meta-Analytic Evidence
Objective: The aim of this study is to assess the results of all meta-analyses on anomalous perception conducted between 1989 and 2021 in order to find moderators associated with greater effect
Am I Luckier Than You? Individual Differences in Precognition Performance
The results found in parapsychological research have not been particularly persuasive, in large part due to a lack of replicability of those studies purporting evidence in support of the existence
Meta-analysis of free-response studies, 1992-2008: assessing the noise reduction model in parapsychology.
TLDR
It was found that selected participants (believers in the paranormal, meditators, etc.) had a performance advantage over unselected participants, but only if they were in the ganzfeld condition.

From time immemorial, people have reported foreknowledge of future events. To determine whether such experiences are best understood via conventional explanations, or whether a retrocausal phenomenon
Does Psi Exist? Reply to Storm and Ertel (2001)
The authors recently published a nonsignificant meta-analysis of 30 extrasensory perception ganzfeld studies, all conducted after the 1986 publication of important methodological guidelines aimed at
Does psi exist? Comments on Milton and Wiseman's (1999) meta-analysis of ganzfeld research.
TLDR
The authors conducted stepwise performance comparisons between all available databases of ganzfeld research, which were argued not to be lacking in quality and found significant bidirectional psi effects were also found in all databases.
Does Precognition Foresee the Future? Series 4: A Postal Replication
A methodological issue early on in precognition research has been to devise a procedure to rule out real-time alternatives in experimental tests for precognition. Even in the very early tests for
