Title of Study: ESP and Motor Automatisms.
“Our aim in this study is to explore ESP in dissociated states of consciousness. The word ‘dissociation’ is often linked to mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and dissociative identity disorder (multiple personality), but all of us experience milder versions of it in everyday life. A simple example is keeping your car on the road while talking to the person sitting next to you. It is this more normal type of dissociation that we are interested in for the study.” For more information go here.

From the Paranthropology website About section: “The journal aims to promote an interdisciplinary dialogue on issues of the paranormal, so as to move beyond the sceptic vs. advocate impasse which has settled over the current debate, and to open new avenues for enquiry and understanding.”
