A Study of Human Biofields by Bill Joines, Ph.D.

A variety of detectors, including those that can measure charge accumulation and electromagnetic emissions, are being used to study bio-energy healers, meditators and people who claim unusual effects on electrical equipment. This is a continuation of work originally begun at Duke University that is now being performed at The Rhine Center. It is funded by a grant from the Bial Foundation to  Bill Joines, Ph.D. Notices will be posted on the Rhine Center website when there is a need for research participants.

Implicit PSI: A Study on the Hidden Part That Extrasensory Processes Play in Everyday Experiences by Jim Carpenter, Ph.D.

What unconscious processes affect our esthetic preferences? This study examines how both extrasensory and subliminal influences act upon our experience of liking or disliking things, and looks at how these two sources of potential influence work together in the unconscious mind. This study will present participants with both types of unconscious material and at the same time evoke a heightened interest in the material in some cases. Certain dimensions of personality will also be assessed, as they are expected to affect both types of unconscious influence. The expectations of the study are drawn from the author's First Sight model of psi functioning, and represent an attempt to elaborate that model empirically. This research is conducted by Jim Carpenter, Ph.D. and supported by the BIAL Foundation. Notices will be posted on the Rhine Center website when there is a need for research participants.
