Things That Go Bump in the Literature: An Environmental Appraisal of “Haunted Houses”
TLDR
A narrative overview of the past 20-years of environmental research on anomalous experiences attributed to “haunted house” revealed a relative paucity of studies on environmental factors that ostensibly stimulate haunt-type experiences and a recurring focus on six ambient variables.
Explaining agency detection within a domain-specific, culturally attuned model
Agency detection is a central concept in the cognitive science of religion (CSR). Experimental studies, however, have so far failed to lend support to some of the most common predictions that follow
Predictive coding in agency detection
ABSTRACT Agency detection is a central concept in the cognitive science of religion (CSR). Experimental studies, however, have so far failed to lend support to some of the most common predictions
Altered, expanded and distributed embodiment : the three stages of interactive presence
This conceptual chapter outlines three stages in the development of interactive presence, and outlines some possibilities and challenges raised by each, and by their combination. The first stage,
Magnetic Stimulation of the Temporal Cortex: A Partial “God Helmet” Replication Study
TLDR
Analysis of the subjects’ verbal reports revealed significant differences between subjects and controls, as well as less robust effects for suggestion and expectation.
Can Neurotheology Explain Religion?
Neurotheology is a fast-growing field of research. Combining philosophy of mind, neuroscience, and religious studies, it takes a new approach to old questions on religion. What is religion and why do
Neuromagnetic effects on Anomalous Cognitive Experiences: A Critical Appraisal of the Evidence for Induced Sensed-presence and Haunt-type Experiences
A growing number of laboratory studies have shown that anomalous sensed-presence experiences can be artificially induced by applying temporally complex, weak-intensity magnetic fields to the outer
An Analysis of Contextual Variables and the Incidence of Photographic Anomalies at an Alleged Haunt and a Control Site
This field study assessed whether areas in an alleged haunt and a control site, and active and inactive areas within the haunt site, differed with respect to the presence of contextual variables that

Sydney Brenner, the joint winner of the 2002 Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine, delightfully described a slide in which data points were scattered very close to a straight line—but not quite in the same direction.
