Extra-sensory perception

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract / Description of output

This chapter is about extra-sensory perception, a term that implies some kind of information processing model of paranormal phenomena: that individuals are somehow perceiving, processing and responding to information acquired without the mediation of their known senses. I will set out some of the evidence that parapsychologists claim supports the existence of genuine paranormal perception. There is still controversy over these claims, however even if it turns out that seemingly paranormal phenomena can be explained through normal mechanisms, scientists have a responsibility to try and understand them because many people have experiences that they interpret as paranormal.
