Abstract/Results: OBJECTIVES:
A key objective of this project was to examine how people use communicative resources and linguistic tools to verbalise reflections on their own experience of consciousness. It is anticipated that the results of the project would be of benefit to parapsychologists interested in the ways in which mentations may reveal the working of anomalous communicative processes in ordinary consciousness.
METHODS:
Data consisted of audio recordings of the mentation stage of ganzfeld ESP experiments conducted at the Koestler Parapsychology Unit at the University of Edinburgh during the 1990s. These recordings were transcribed according to the conventions of conversation analysis.
Data were analysed using conversation analysis. This is a qualitative method for the examination of the structural, interpersonal and normative properties of naturally occurring verbal interaction. It has previously been used in study of experimenter-subject interaction in ganzfeld experiments, in studies of reports of spontaneous psi related experiences, and in studies of the language of psychic practitioners.
RESULTS:
The empirical analysis has discovered various communicative practices by which participants in ganzfeld experiment produce mentation reports. Analysis focused on:
The institutional character of the discourse of mentation reports (how descriptions of inner experience are designed to address the institutional, experimental and laboratory context in which the report is produced); The management of rights and responsibilities (how subjects display their tacit understanding of the normative obligations and expectations that underpin participation in laboratory procedures);
The playfulness of mentation discourse (how subjects used poetic discourse in the mentations, and how these poetical features impinged on the content of the report).
CONCLUSIONS:
In various publications, we have argued that, in the use of introspective data, it may be necessary for parapsychologists and consciousness researchers to try to take account of the social and interpersonal properties of discourse and communication. This is because what is taken to be the content of a report may be inextricability tied to the discourse practices through which it is made available to the researcher.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This article examines poetic phenomena—rhymes, alliteration, puns—that appear in the introspective reports of people who have taken part in a psychology experiment. We argue that these phenomena are a form of discourse poetics identified in conversational data by Sacks and subsequently discussed by Jefferson, among others. We extend earlier research, first, to identify how the organization of these introspective narratives facilitates a range of poetic and rhetorical forms more commonly associated with the study of classical literary and religious texts; and second, to provide evidence that these poetic forms are not happenstance but are pragmatic achievements.

Silence and its organization in the pragmatics of introspection

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In this article we examine periods of silence during introspective reports produced during an experimental laboratory procedure. Drawing from conversation analytic research and Sacks’s observations on silences, we argue that silences are a significant resource by which introspective accounts may be designed for the institutional requirements of the experimental setting. We identify the normative features of silence, and sketch some of the pragmatic or performative functions facilitated by silence. We conclude by considering our findings for the more general use of introspective data in the study of consciousness and cognate disciplines.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Parapsychology is the scientific study of claims of anomalous communication, or anomalous cognition, and it is a predominantly experimental and laboratory-based discipline. In this article we examine transcripts of recordings from extra sensory perception (ESP) experiments as part of which participants were required to make introspective reports on their inner mental experiences. The data are recordings and transcripts of “ganzfeld” ESP experiments conducted at the Koestler Parapsychology Unit at the University of Edinburgh. Drawing from conversation analysis and discursive psychology, which seek to identify, among other things, recurrent and robust properties of describing as a social activity, we examine these reports to illuminate generic issues in the production of verbal introspective data, and make some particular remarks relevant to their role in this kind of parapsychological experiment.

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:
The authors provide an introduction to the articles and commentaries which comprise the special issue on anomalous experience and qualitative research. It is argued that within psychology there have been two broad responses to reports of paranormal experiences: laboratory-based parapsychological studies and studies which seek to identify the determining factors that lead people to believe that they have experienced paranormal phenomena. However, recently an alternative perspective has developed in which the analytic goal is not to explain away or corroborate participants' claims or experiences but to understand in more detail their significance as psychological, social, and cultural events. The articles which comprise this special issue contribute to this development. They all begin from the assumption that anomalous experiences are fundamentally meaningful events, symbolically mediated through language and communication, which are inextricably enmeshed in the fabric of interpersonal actions in social settings, and reflect their broader historical and cultural context. What also unites these articles is that they show how the qualitative analysis of events or experiences can contribute to our understanding of fundamental psychological and social psychological processes.

Reporting on consciousness: Communication in mentation narratives
Publication year: 2008
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
In this paper we report on an analysis of mentation reports from a series of autoganzfeld experiments. The data come from the sender/no sender experiments conducted at the Koestler Parapsychology Unit in the 1990s (Morris, Dalton, Delanoy & Watt, 1995). Previous research on mentation narratives has tended to focus, firstly, on the degree to which participants‘ descriptions of their imagery correspond to the characteristics of the stimulus materials, secondly, on identifying psychological characteristics of the participants‘ experience during the ganzfeld procedure. The analysis presented here, however, takes a different perspective. Drawing from methods for the analysis of communication in social science and linguistics, we treat mentation reports as socially organised and discursive events. Instead of examining participants‘ reports to identify indicators of inner cognitive experience then, we analyse them to identify communicative skills and practices through which mentation narratives are pragmatically constructed. We offer a review of three findings. First, we make some observations on the temporal organisation of imagery descriptions. Second, we examine a discourse strategy by which participants may exhibit a stance or position on the status of the imagery they report. Finally, we note some poetic features of imagery description in mentation reports. In the discussion we explore the implications of these findings, and this kind of analysis, for parapsychological research on mentation reports, and for the use of introspective data in the study of consciousness more generally.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
The authors argue it is essential to examine the linguistic and communicative practices that are used in the production of introspective data, and thereby make an important contribution to debates about how we may study experience that are relevant to a wide range of disciplines. The book has three objectives. It offers an account of the way in which contemporary researchers are employing introspection methodologies; it argues for the importance of viewing introspective data as discourse, and illustrates this via discussion of research findings in four substantive chapters; and it outlines new directions for research and theorising on introspection and consciousness which will have implications for a range of psychological and social science disciplines.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
A key objective of this project was to examine how people use communicative resources and linguistic tools to verbalise reflections on their own experience of consciousness. It is anticipated that the results of the project would be of benefit to parapsychologists interested in the ways in which mentations may reveal the working of anomalous communicative processes in ordinary consciousness.
METHODS:
Data consisted of audio recordings of the mentation stage of ganzfeld ESP experiments conducted at the Koestler Parapsychology Unit at the University of Edinburgh during the 1990s. These recordings were transcribed according to the conventions of conversation analysis.
Data were analysed using conversation analysis. This is a qualitative method for the examination of the structural, interpersonal and normative properties of naturally occurring verbal interaction. It has previously been used in study of experimenter-subject interaction in ganzfeld experiments, in studies of reports of spontaneous psi related experiences, and in studies of the language of psychic practitioners.
RESULTS:
The empirical analysis has discovered various communicative practices by which participants in ganzfeld experiment produce mentation reports. Analysis focused on The institutional character of the discourse of mentation reports (how descriptions of inner experience are designed to address the institutional, experimental and laboratory context in which the report is produced);
The management of rights and responsibilities
(how subjects display their tacit understanding of the normative obligations and expectations that underpin participation in laboratory procedures);
The playfulness of mentation discourse
(how subjects used poetic discourse in the mentations, and how these poetical features impinged on the content of the report).
CONCLUSIONS:
In various publications, we have argued that, in the use of introspective data, it may be necessary for parapsychologists and consciousness researchers to try to take account of the social and interpersonal properties of discourse and communication. This is because what is taken to be the content of a report may be inextricability tied to the discourse practices through which it is made available to the researcher.
