TARG AND PUTHOFF1–3 have described investigations of an extrasensory remote viewing ability which they claim may be widely distributed in the general population. We have carried out duplicate experiments, but our results do not verify their conclusions.

Performance at a Precognitive Remote Viewing Task, with and without Ganzfeld Stimulation: Three Experiments
Recent research by the lead author has sought to incorporate ganzfeld stimulation as part of a remote viewing protocol. An initial exploratory experiment (Roe & Flint, 2007) suggested that noviceExpand
Remote Viewing: Failures to Replicate with Control Comparisons
The paranormal phenomenon termed “remote viewing” was investigated using procedures employed in successful demonstrations of the phenomenon. 20 selected college students volunteered as receivers andExpand
Investigating the paranormal
Parascience has so far failed to produce a single repeatable finding and, until it does, will continue to be viewed as an incoherent collection of belief systems steeped in fantasy, illusion andExpand
The anomaly called psi: Recent research and criticism
Over the past hundred years, a number of scientific investigators claim to have adduced experimental evidence for “psi” phenomena – that is, the apparent ability to receive information shielded fromExpand
The psychology of paranormal beliefs
Investigation of paranormal claims has failed to find any repeatable paranormal phenomena, yet beliefs in such phenomena are extemely prevalent. Some of the psychological mechanisms which supportExpand
Psi experiments: Do the best parapsychological experiments justify the claims for psi?
TLDR
The results of the scrutiny of the three most widely heralded programs of research — the remote viewing experiments, the psi ganzfeld research, and the work with random number generators — indicates that parapsychological research falls short of the professed standards of the field. Expand
Parapsychology: Science of the anomalous or search for the soul?
Although there has been over a century of formal empirical inquiry, parapsychologists have clearly failed to produce a single reliable demonstration of “paranormal,” or “psi,” phenomena. AlthoughExpand
Editorial: Four score (plus) years ago
Among their many achievements, Joseph Banks Rhine and collaborators launched The Journal of Parapsychology (JP) in 1937, the foremost venue for parapsychology experimental research and surpassed inExpand

WE present results of experiments suggesting the existence of one or more perceptual modalities through which individuals obtain information about their environment, although this information is notExpand
A perceptual channel for information transfer over kilometer distances: Historical perspective and recent research
TLDR
The history of scientific inquiry into so-called paranormal perception is presented, some areas of physics are suggested from which a description or explanation of the phenomenon could be forthcoming and the current state of the art in parapsychological research is surveyed. Expand
Immunoglobulin of T lymphoma cells is an integral membrane protein
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
