How can we accurately test for telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and psychokinesis (mind over matter)?
One stumbling block is the possibility that experimenters and subjects are unconsciously influenced to find what they expect to find — and not what’s really happening. If this is true, it would be very hard to replicate experiments and get the same results. Join IONS Scientist, Dr. Arnaud Delorme, on Friday, April 2nd to hear about a “time-reversed” experiment that offers an innovative approach to the role of beliefs in psi.
Discover how this research has helped to validate precognition — and how his findings will help make it easier to replicate psi experiments going forward!

Arnaud Delorme, PhD, is a CNRS principal investigator in Toulouse, France, a member faculty at the University of California, San Diego, and a research scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. In 2000, Dr. Delorme completed his PhD thesis on visual categorization in humans, monkeys, and machines. Dr. Delorme then moved to the Salk Institute for a post-doc in Terry Sejnowski and Francis Crick’s laboratory where he focused on statistical analysis of electro-encephalographic (EEG) signal recorded during various cognitive tasks. He developed the free EEGLAB software for advanced analysis of EEG signals in collaboration with Scott Makeig, software which is now amongst the most used in EEG research worldwide. He was awarded a Brettencourt-Schueller young investigator award and a 10-year anniversary ANT young investigator award for his contributions to the field of EEG research.
