Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Building on published and anecdotal accounts which suggested that experimenter-subject relationship was important to the outcome of parapsychology experiments, this project used Conversation Analysis to examine participants' discourse in recordings of mentation review phases of ganzfeld experiments conducted at the KPU in Edinburgh.
The research examined robust verbal practices in which one participant displayed a positive or affiliative stance towards the other. For example, linguistic studies of reported speech in other contexts have found that it is a method by which a current speaker can establish their affiliation to the person whose speech is being reported. In the data it was found that reported speech was used to accomplish various interactional functions: it prompted subjects to provide further information about an item; it marked transitions between different phases of the review; and it was a device through which experimenters could tacitly orchestrate clarification or correction by the subject. The analysis also offered a categorisation of subjects' responsiveness, or recipiency, and examined experimenters' verbal characteristics associated with the preferred high subject recipiency.
It was found that experimenter's use of acknowledge token (such as 'mm hm') to receipt subject comments were more likely to facilitate high or expanded recipiency. Experimenter responses such as 'okay' were associated with verbal practices in which the likelihood of subject expansion was minimised. The project also examined instances in which experimenters departed from their institutional role or task to offer encouraging or affiliative utterances. Analysis of these and other topics continues.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In this article we study how reported speech markers are used as procedural resources in a laboratory based parapsychology experiment to investigate forms of anomalous communication, such as extrasensory perception. In particular, we focus on how specific activities in a key part of the experiment are mediated by the use of 'you said' formulations which project that whatever is said next is a paraphrase or a verbatim report of what the recipient had said earlier. We identify two uses of reported speech markers. First, they are used in utterances that initiate some form of repair, such as correction or clarification. Second, they cluster in sequential locations that mark, after a temporary suspension, the resumption of key activities in the experiment. In this we hope to contribute to the study of the institutional properties of reported speech. We conclude by discussing the ways in which broader cultural understandings of the inferential force of 'you said' formulations inform their use in this institutional setting, and reflecting on the significance of these findings for parapsychological investigation of anomalous communication in this setting.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This paper reports findings from a conversation analytic study of experimenter-participant interaction in parapsychology experiments. It shows how properties of communication through which the routine business of the experiment is conducted may have an impact on the research participant's subsequent performance. In this, the study explores social psychological features of the psychology laboratory. In particular, it examines aspects of Orne's (1962) account of what he called the demand characteristics of the psychological experiment. The data come from a corpus of audio recordings of experimenter-participant interaction during experiments on extra-sensory perception. These kinds of experiments, and the phenomena they purport to study, are undoubtedly controversial; however, the paper argues that there are grounds for social psychologists to consider parapsychology experiments as a class (albeit distinctive) of psychology experiments, and, therefore, as sites in which general social psychological and communicative phenomena can be studied. The empirical sections of the paper examine interaction during part of the experimental procedure when the experimenter verbally reviews a record of the participant's imagery reported during an earlier part of the experiment. The analysis shows that the way in which the experimenter acknowledges the research participants' utterances may be significant for the trajectory of the experiment and explores how the participants' subsequent performance in the experiment may be influenced by interactionally generated contingencies.

Towards a discursive parapsychology: language and the laboratory study of anomalous communication

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In recent years there has been a change in attitudes among psychologists and social scientists towards ostensibly paranormal experiences in general, and parapsychological research in particular. Instead of seeking to endorse or debunk claims of paranormal experience, attention has shifted to the analysis of the broader psychological, social and cultural implications of reports of anomalous phenomena. This paper contributes to this trend by arguing for a discursive psychological study of interaction between experimenter and subject in parapsychology laboratory experiments. Parapsychological experiments rely on mundane interactional practices which invoke the relevance of, or make explicit reference to, psychological and parapsychological states. These laboratory interactions can be investigated by conversation-analytic-informed discursive psychology. Some preliminary observations on data from ganzfeld ESP experiments are offered to illustrate the range of empirical issues which may be explored. These concern the socially organized properties of reports of conscious imagery; the use of a psychological thesaurus as part of the experimenter’s work; and the management of affiliation in experimenter-subject interaction. These observations suggest that discursive psychological research can be undertaken despite the controversial status of evidence for extra-sensorimotor communication. The paper argues that the discursive psychological studies of interaction in parapsychological experiments can yield findings relevant to the concerns of both parapsychology and discursive psychology, and can contribute to methodological issues in the broader study of consciousness.

Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Abstract/Results: BOOK DESCRIPTION:
Conversation analysis is increasingly understood as providing a major contribution to theories and methods across the social sciences. Hutchby and Wooffitt have written an introduction to conversation analysis which is clear, authoritative and engaging. It is the best book on conversation analysis so far, and it will be hard to better it. It is a splendid textbook that will be eagerly adopted by those teaching conversation analysis but it will also be read widely by researchers and academics who want to find out what this thriving and challenging field has to offer." Jonathan Potter, Loughborough University "The book makes a distinctive and welcome contribution ... compares favourably with others of its kind ... As CA continues to develop, and as the task of presenting a comprehensive summary of its findings becomes increasingly challenging, it may be that the best introductions to the field are those that provide the reader - as Hutchby and Wooffitt aim to do - with "the basic means of beginning on a piece of CA research". On those terms this book is a success and can be recommended."

Negotiating consciousness: parapsychology and the social organisation of reports of mental states

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Parapsychology is concerned with a class of subjective psychological experiences which seem to suggest that humans have anomalous communicative abilities: the facility to interact with other humans or the environment without the use of the normal five senses. Experiences such as telepathy (mind-to-mind communication) and psychokinesis (mind-to-matter interaction) are said to be anomalous because there appears to be no biological or physical mechanisms by which to account for these ostensibly paranormal phenomena. (Introductions to and overviews of parapsychology can be found in Edge et al., 1986; Irwin, 1999; and Radin, 1997.)
In the parapsychological literature, the term ‘psi’ is used to refer to the as yet little understood processes which, it is proposed, underpin the variety of extra-sensory phenomena. Psi is assumed to be a function of the brain. Consequently, parapsychologists are extremely interested in a range of cognitive and mental phenomena which may be related in some way to the operation of psi, such as volition, intuition, states of consciousness, dream states, imagery, and so on. It is felt that if psi does exist, then its effects may be detected in or influenced by precisely these kinds of psychological entities or processes. Examination of, say, the relationship between consciousness and extra-sensory phenomena may reveal more about psi and how it works.
For example, there is evidence to suggest that psi is more likely to occur when people are in some form of relaxed or altered state of consciousness.

Doubt marked expansion sequences in ganzfeld mentation reviews
Publication year: 2006
URL:
http://parapsychology.se/PA-stockholm/abstract/a20.html
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Conversation analysis (CA) is a formal, qualitative method for the analysis of naturally-occurring interaction. It has been applied to the investigation of the discourse of anomalous experiences, and in the analysis of experimenter-subject interaction in parapsychology experiments. This paper contributes to this latter line of research. A key feature of the CA method is to examine how a turn's design exhibits its producer's tacit understanding of the on-going interaction. This methodological step is illustrated by analysis of data from ganzfeld experiments conducted at the Koestler Parapsychology Unit at the University of Edinburgh. The analysis focuses on two different ways in which experimenters receipt subject communication in the mentation review phase of the experimental procedure. In the review, experimenters go over their record of the subject's prior mentation imagery. After introducing each instance of mentation imagery, the experimenters leave a short gaps before proceeding to introduce the next item in the review. This slot provides an opportunity for the subject to correct the experimenter's record of the mentation, if necessary, or to add further information about their imagery. Routinely, subjects pass on this opportunity to expand upon their prior mentation imagery. However, when they do provide further information about their imagery, this expansion turn is usually receipted by "okay" from the experimenter, who then moves on to the next mentation imagery. In some cases, though, expansion turns are receipted by "mm hm" or its variants. In such cases, it is observable that the subject provides further talk about the relevant imagery. However, in various ways, in this further talk the subject exhibits a much more circumspect or cautious stance toward their imagery; for example, there are expressions of doubt about the status of the imagery, or accounts which attribute the imagery to mundane aspects of the environment. It is argued that these doubt marked or circumspect expansion sequences are interactionally generated in that they emerge from the subject's interpretation of the significance of the experimenter's "mm hm" receipt of their prior talk. The paper concludes by offering some speculative observations on the possible consequences of the different interpretations subjects may draw from these two forms of experimenter receipt.

History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This paper introduces the substantive and methodological approach of conversation analysis (CA), a rigorous, qualitative method for the study of naturally occurring talk in interaction. It argues that CA can be used to analyze potentially significant linguistic practices during research in parapsychology laboratories. To establish the relevance of CA, three arguments are presented. First, it is observed that the work of a parapsychology laboratory relies on a largely unexamined set of interactional moments. Second, the paper discusses aspects of the methodology of CA, a key feature of which is the use of distinctive transcription techniques. Finally, the paper illustrates the empirical approach of conversation analysis by examining some properties of experimenter-subject interaction during mentation review periods; the data are from ganzfeld experiments conducted at the Koestler Parapsychology Unit during the 1990s. The paper concludes by discussing some methodological and substantive areas in which CA might be of use in parapsychological research.
