ESP Enigma: The Scientific Case for Psychic Phenomena by Diane Hennacy Powell, Diane Hennacy Powell, M.D. Diane Hennacy

Psychic phenomena have long been relegated to the fringe of scientific examination, but several rigorously supervised studies have proven that such phenomena as telepathy, precognition, and psychokinesis have a scientific basis. Dr. Diane Powell, a Johns Hopkins-trained neuropsychiatrist, proposes a fascinating new paradigm for consciousness that demystifies psychic phenomena. She explores why psychic abilities ate stronger among prodigies, autistic savants, people with bipolar illness, and in individuals with certain brain injuries and other neurological conditions. Brain imaging and other recent research explains which parts of the brain are more dominant and how the mind of a mystic or psychic could have an organizational effect on the physical world. Using reliable scientific research, The ESP Enigma establishes a common ground among psychic phenomena believers and skeptics.
