It’s often said that psychic abilities run in families. According to one Scottish survey, if one of your parents has second sight, there is a 50 percent chance that you have it. If both your parents have second sight, there is a 50 to 100 percent chance that you have it.
IONS followed up on this survey finding with a formal genetic research study involving 13 high-performing psychics and 10 controls with no psychic ability.
The Genetics of Psychic Abilities

Please register even if you can’t attend live and you’ll receive an email with a link to the recording.
The findings from the study were highly suggestive and unexpected. If further work confirms our initial findings, it will open an entirely new way of understanding the biological basis for psychic abilities, and their evolutionary origins and purpose. It could also allow us to better cultivate these abilities.
Join IONS Director of Research, Dr. Helané Wahbeh, in a ConnectIONS Live webinar about our Psigenes research project. You will learn how genetics impact psi abilities and how you can participate in this ongoing research.
