  • Camille Flammarion on the powers of the soul. [Journal Article]
    Hist Psychiatry 2019; :957154X19891015Alvarado CS, Zingrone NL
  • There is a long conceptual tradition that interprets phenomena such as clairvoyance and apparitions as evidence for a spiritual component in human beings. Examples of this appear in the literatures of mesmerism, Spiritualism and psychical research. The purpose of this Classic Text is to present excerpts from a book by French astronomer Camille Flammarion touching on this perspective. They are sel…
  • Searching for the impossible: Parapsychology's elusive quest. [Journal Article]
    Am Psychol 2019Reber AS, Alcock JE
  • Recently, American Psychologist published a review of the evidence for parapsychology that supported the general claims of psi (the umbrella term often used for anomalous or paranormal phenomena). We present an opposing perspective and a broad-based critique of the entire parapsychology enterprise. Our position is straightforward. Claims made by parapsychologists cannot be true. The effects repor…
  • Human Biofield Therapy and the Growth of Mouse Lung Carcinoma. [Journal Article]
    Integr Cancer Ther 2019 Jan-Dec; 18:1534735419840797Yang P, Jiang Y, … Cohen L
  • Biofield therapies have gained popularity and are being explored as possible treatments for cancer. In some cases, devices have been developed that mimic the electromagnetic fields that are emitted from people delivering biofield therapies. However, there is limited research examining if humans could potentially inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells and suppress tumor growth through modificat…
  • Jules Bernard Luys on magnetic pathology. [Journal Article]
    Hist Psychiatry 2019; 30(3):359-374Alvarado CS
  • In the mesmeric movement, one of the phenomena cited to defend the existence of magnetic and nervous forces was the visual perception of them in the form of luminous emanations from people, or effluvia. This Classic Text is an 1892 article by French neurologist, Jules Bernard Luys (1828-97), about the observation of such effluvia by hypnotized individuals. Interestingly, the luminous phenomena pe…
  • Registered reports: an early example and analysis. [Journal Article]
    PeerJ 2019; 7:e6232Wiseman R, Watt C, Kornbrot D
  • The recent 'replication crisis' in psychology has focused attention on ways of increasing methodological rigor within the behavioral sciences. Part of this work has involved promoting 'Registered Reports', wherein journals peer review papers prior to data collection and publication. Although this approach is usually seen as a relatively recent development, we note that a prototype of this publish…
  • Exceptional experiences reported by scientists and engineers. [Letter]
    Explore (NY) 2018; 14(5):329-341Wahbeh H, Radin D, … Delorme A
  • Throughout history people have reported exceptional experiences that appear to transcend the everyday boundaries of space and time, such as perceiving someone's thoughts from a distance. Because such experiences are associated with superstition, and some violate currently accepted materialist conventions, one might assume that scientists and engineers would be much less likely to report instances…
  • Remote Viewing of Concealed Target Pictures Under Light and Dark Conditions. [Journal Article]
    Explore (NY) 2019 Jan - Feb; 15(1):27-37Krippner S, Saunders DT, … Quan A
  • CONCLUSIONS: The findings may have implications for the use of participant judgments in future remote viewing research. Furthermore, because there are several advantages to what parapsychologists refer to as "free response" targets as opposed to "forced choice" targets (Honorton, 1975), the findings for target numinosity may have implications for the future selection of target material.
