OUR investigations of various alleged extra-sensory phenomena (ESP) over the past three years are reported here, in particular psychokinesis, metal-bending, psychic healing and dowsing. One of our aims was to search for unusual electromagnetic (EM) radiation emitted by subjects while they were achieving or trying to achieve the phenomena. The quest for EM concomitants of ESP is based on our deduction that it is the only known force that could conceivably be involved (ref. 1 and J.G.T. and E… Expand

Generation of Elastic Waves by Transient Surface Heating
When the surface of a body is subjected to transient heating (e.g., by electron bombardment or rf absorption) elastic waves are produced as a result of surface motion due to thermal expansion. ThisExpand

TLDR
It is proposed that the antigen-combining site of T cell IgM protrudes from the cell surface, but that the Fc portion bearing the characteristic antigenic determinants of the heavy chain is not accessible to large molecules in the solvent. Expand
