Electronic Voice Phenomena

  • Rhine Research Center EVP Panel

    Please consider contributing to the Rhine to enable us to bring you more presentations of this type - live and over the internet via a simulcast.

    Of all of the data that paranormal investigators collect, Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) -- audio recordings of voices that were not heard at the time that they were recorded -- provide perhaps the most provocative and controversial evidence of activity in supposedly haunted locations. Although some investigators claim that EVP are the voices of unseen entities, critics say that they result from mundane sources such as radio transmissions or the tendency of the brain to create patterns from random sounds. A panel of three research scientists (Mark Leary, John Palmer, and Graham Watkins) and two highly experienced paranormal investigators (George Mathis and Jim Hall) will discuss what we presently know about EVP and the degree to which scientific research can address questions regarding the source and nature of Electronic Voice Phenomena.
