UNIVERSITIES OF PARAPSYCHOLOGICAL STUDIES
 

  • Goldsmiths, University of London - Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit
    Anomalistic psychology may be defined as the study of extraordinary phenomena of behaviour and experience, including (but not restricted to) those which are often labeled "paranormal". It is directed towards understanding bizarre experiences that many people have without assuming a priori that there is anything paranormal involved. It entails attempting to explain paranormal and related beliefs and ostensibly paranormal experiences in terms of known psychological and physical factors.

 

  • University of Edinburgh - Koestler Parapsychology Unit
    Established in 1985, we are based in the Psychology Department at the University of Edinburgh, teaching and researching parapsychology. Our work examines the possible existence of psychic ability, anomalous experiences and belief in the paranormal, deception and self-deception and historical and conceptual issues in parapsychology. We invite you to explore the site and discover more about our work.”
     

  • University of Virginia Medical School - Division of Perceptual Studies
    At the Division of Perceptual Studies, we believe that a revolution in intellectual history is taking shape, and we have a unique role to play in bringing it to fruition.  Current mainstream science and philosophy portray mind, personality and consciousness as nothing more than byproducts of brain activity encased within our skulls and vanishing at death.  Through its research, DOPS strives to challenge this entrenched mainstream view by rigorously evaluating empirical evidence suggesting that consciousness survives death and that mind and brain are distinct and separable.  And we are not alone.  Growing numbers of scientists and philosophers are becoming convinced that the prevailing physicalist picture is fundamentally flawed, and that science urgently needs to extend in directions that will allow it to accommodate genuine spiritual experiences without loss of scientific integrity.
