Contact: Ed Kelly PhD, Primary Investigator Phone:(434) 892-1088 Volunteers 18 and older are needed for a study of physiological correlates of success in controlled Psi (ESP/Psycho-kinesis) tasks. You may qualify if you: *Are at least 18 *Have a history of unusual experiences as defined by the Unusual Experiences Inventory *Have a history of success in Psi Process experiments *Are not currently pregnant If you are able to perform consistently at above-chance levels in any of the controlled psi tasks we have implemented in our laboratory we will invite you to participate in the more critical neuroimaging phase of our experiments. In these, we will use electroencephalography (EEG) and/or functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) techniques in an attempt to find out exactly what is occurring in the brain as the subject is experiencing unusual success within a given Psi task. Each imaging session will take approximately two hours or less including setup and practice time. We will run at least two sessions with each selected protocol. You will be able to discontinue participation at any time, or to elect to continue as you wish by mutual agreement with the investigators. Compensation: $50.00 per subject or $100.00 per couple for study completion Should the subject need to travel to our lab setting here in Charlottesville, VA compensation will be provided in the form of travel and per diem expenses, otherwise there is no compensation.
