OBJECTIVES This study aims to contribute to a scientific understanding of intuition, a process by which information normally outside the range of conscious awareness is perceived by the body's psychophysiological systems. The first objective, presented in two empirical reports (Part 1 and Part 2), was to replicate and extend the results of previous experiments demonstrating that the body can respond to an emotionally arousing stimulus seconds before it is actually experienced. The second… 

Figures from this paper

Electrophysiological evidence of intuition: part 1. The surprising role of the heart.
TLDR
Surprisingly, the heart appears to receive and respond to intuitive information; a significantly greater heart rate deceleration occurred prior to future emotional stimuli compared to calm stimuli; and there were significant gender differences in the processing of prestimulus information.
Electrophysiology of Intuition: Pre-stimulus Responses in Group and Individual Participants Using a Roulette Paradigm
TLDR
The study evaluated a revised version of a roulette protocol, which included two pre-stimulus segments and included an analysis of the individual participant's data over eight separate trials in addition to a group-level analysis, which indicated that the revised protocol provides an effective objective measure for detecting a pre- Stimulus response, which reflects a type of nonlocal intuition.
Nonlocal Intuition: Replication and Paired-subjects Enhancement Effects
TLDR
The results of the single-participant experiment confirm previous finding: that electrophysiological measures, especially changes in the heart rhythm, can detect intuitive foreknowledge, and offer new evidence on the amplification of the nonlocal intuition signal.
Nonlocal intuition in repeat entrepreneurs: a replication and co-subject effects using electrophysiological measures
This paper reports the results of a study of repeat entrepreneurs in Tehran, Iran, in which nonlocal intuition was investigated in a replication experiment using electrophysiological measures of
The Psychophysiology Of Intuition: A Quantum-Holographic Theory Of Nonlocal Communication
This work seeks to explain intuitive perception—those perceptions that are not based on reason or logic or on memories or extrapolations from the past, but are based, instead, on accurate
Predictive Physiological Anticipation Preceding Seemingly Unpredictable Stimuli: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
It is concluded that to further examine this currently unexplained anticipatory activity, multiple replications arising from different laboratories using the same methods are necessary.
Before cognition: the active contribution of the heart/ANS to intuitive decision making as measured on repeat entrepreneurs in the Cambridge Technolopol
This paper reports the preliminary results of a pilot study testing the efficacy of a new experimental protocol to measure the psychophysiological basis of entrepreneurial intuition—that part of
Psychophysiological Evidence of Possible Retrocausal Effects in Humans
If the human nervous system operates exclusively according to conventional causal assumptions, then one’s physiological status before exposure to a randomly selected stimulus should not depend on the

Electrophysiological evidence of intuition: part 1. The surprising role of the heart.
TLDR
Surprisingly, the heart appears to receive and respond to intuitive information; a significantly greater heart rate deceleration occurred prior to future emotional stimuli compared to calm stimuli; and there were significant gender differences in the processing of prestimulus information.
ANOMALOUS ANTICIPATORY BRAIN ACTIVATION PRECEDING EXPOSURE OF EMOTIONAL AND NEUTRAL PICTURES
TLDR
It is found that large parts of the visual cortex do show larger activity after emotional stimuli than after calm and differential effects in the responses to emotional stimuli and calm visual stimuli are presented.
Skin Conductance Prestimulus Response: Analyses, Artifacts and a Pilot Study
Previous studies have suggested that the human autonomic nervous system responds to stimuli 2- 3 seconds before presentation. In these studies randomly chosen photographs with high and low
Anomalous anticipatory skin conductance response to acoustic stimuli: experimental results and speculation about a mechanism.
TLDR
To understand these results, it is demonstrated, by Monte Carlo techniques, that a possible explanation is that experimenters may have used their own intuition to initiate experiment runs to somehow sort otherwise random nonspecific skin conductance responses into appropriate bins in order to mimic physiological responses.
Electrodermal Presentiments of Future Emotions
In previously reported double-blind experiments, electrodermal activity (EDA) monitored during display of randomly selected photographs showed that EDA was higher before emotional photos than before
Event-Related Brain Potential (ERP) Indicators of Unconscious Psi: A Replication Using Subjects Unselected for Psi
TLDR
Two previous studies in which ERPs elicited by target and nontarget stimuli were recorded from a selected subject, Malcolm Bessent, while he performed a forced-choice task were reported, and the ESPerciser, a computer-controlled psi testing system was modified to present targets and nontargets (decoys) sequentially instead of simultaneously, as in the original software.
From the heart to the brain: a study of heartbeat contingent scalp potentials.
TLDR
Scalp potentials investigated were found to be not due to artifactual EKG influences, and event related potentials (ERPs) of "good" perceivers were more stable across conditions than those of "poor" perceiver.
Gut feelings, intuition, and emotions: an exploratory study.
TLDR
EGG activity increases in response to the emotions of a distant person, beyond the influence of ordinary sensory interactions, and relationships commonly reported between gut feelings and intuitive hunches may share a common, poorly understood, perceptive origin.
Anomalous baseline effects in mainstream emotion research using psychophysiological variables
The goal of this study was to see whether anomalies observed in physiological baseline measurements could be found in data from previously published studies. Three datasets were reanalyzed. The first
Differential Event-Related Potentials to Targets and Decoys in a Guessing Task
Event-related brain potentials (ERPs) were recorded from 20 subjects performing a computerized, forced-choice guessing task. On each of 40 trials, ERPs were elicited by digitized images of 4 playing
