In recent years, a number of scientific studies presenting evidence for precognition have appeared in mainstream academic journals such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and Frontiers of Human Neuroscience. Could this be the start of a paradigm shift? Annalisa Ventola will present how these studies were conducted, how they have been received by the general scientific community, what they may tell us about how precognition works, and a theory of how precognition may operate in our everyday lives.
Annalisa Ventola is an educator, researcher, and administrator in the field of parapsychology with a particular interest in science communication, the training of psi (or psychic) abilities and investigating haunting/poltergeist experiences.
