New Telepathy Experiment Results Positive

A new experiment looking for evidence that telepathy occurs in the brain, has been published in the International Journal of Yoga, by a group at the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, in Bangalore, India.

The experimenters used an fMRI scanner to measure brain activity during the experiment. It measures the haemodynamic response related to neural activity in the brain or spinal cord of humans or other animals. It is one of the most recently developed forms of neuroimaging.

In the experiment the Indian investigation team examined a famous “mentalist” while he was performing a telepathic task in the scanner. A matched control subject without this special ability was also examined under similar conditions.

The mentalist, Mr. Gerard Senehi, demonstrated “significant activation of the right parahippocampal gyrus after successful performance of a telepathic task”, the experimenters’ stated.

“The comparison subject, who did not show any telepathic ability, demonstrated significant activation of the left inferior frontal gyrus.”

The report continued:

“To our knowledge, this is the first fMRI study to examine the brain correlates of telepathy. Previous studies have employed other functional brain mapping techniques. In our study, telepathy was associated with significant activation of the right parahippocampal gyrus; whereas the control subject without telepathic ability, activated the left inferior frontal gyrus under similar task conditions.”

The conclusion of the experimenters was that “The findings of this study are suggestive of a limbic basis for telepathy and warrant further systematic research.”
