In this chapter, Dean Radin and Alan Pierce summarize research on implicit anomalous physiological phenomena, such as the apparent ability to physiologically react to randomly selected arousing stimuli a few seconds before they are shown (presentiment or pre-stimulus response). This paradigm suggests that a large amount of psi activity occurs without conscious awareness. They also review research on whether changes in brain states, such as electroencephalograph (EEG) frequencies and event-related potentials, can be used to detect anomalous mental phenomena.
