I really really want to go to this event – it’s £35 though, and with a £2 discount for the unwaged (hardly the most generous terms!) it is completely out of my league after coming back from Edinburgh Science Festival. On the other hand, if Becky wants to go, or some of the other forum people, it may be worth doing… Anyway if anyone is interested please do let me know – I’ll post a short summary here, but full details on SPR website I guess – www.spr.ac.uk
Here is the advert!
PSI AND BRAIN
Chair: Prof. Bernard Carr
Speakers: Dr. Peter Fenwick, Adrian Ryan, Dr. David Luke, Dr. Ian Baker and Robert Charman
What are the implications of psi for the relationship between mind and brain? Can some psychic interactions be explained by or associated with particular brain processes? If so, what physical or chemical effects on the brain are likely to trigger or accompany such interactions and what is the relationship between the brains of the people interacting? What sort of psi experiences would seem to transcend a brain-based explanation altogether?
In this Study Day, five leading experts will address these questions, placing particular emphasis on geomagnetic and neurochemical effects, EEG correlations during psychic healing and ESP experiments, and the apparent independence of the brain of near-death experiences. The meeting will end with a general discussion with audience participation.
St Philip’s Church, Earls Court Rd, London W8, 10am-5pm.
Cost: Members £30 / Non-Members £35. / Students, Over 60s or Unwaged: £2 discount.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served, but bring your own lunch.
