Selective reporting is sometimes referred to as a "file drawer" problem, which arises when only positive study results are made public, while studies with negative or null results are not made public. [48] Selective reporting has a compounded effect on meta-analysis, which is a statistical technique that aggregates the results of many studies in order to generate sufficient statistical power to demonstrate a result that the individual studies themselves could not demonstrate at a statistically significant level.

Seminars will explore parapsychology informally, as discussion between participants. Focused on the hippocampus it produces an opiate effect without adverse side effects, other than irritation upon withdrawal. Parapsychology is the supposedly scientific study of paranormal phenomena involving the human mind. This failure to flourish can be understood in terms of rationalization and disenchantment—concepts developed by sociologist Max Weber. Broughton, Director of Research at the world-renowned Institute of Parapsychology, illuminates the history and evolution of parapsychology and directly addresses the raging controversy over its very existence as a science.

Parapsychologists search for evidence for unexplainable phenomena. Zoologists have for many years been familiar, too, with the fact that certain species are able to return successfully after being taken to points long distances from home. Guidelines for reporting have not received much attention in the parapsychology literature. The military, doubtless, recognizes the importance of investigating the possibility of influencing the masses by such means as creating visual illusions and hallucinations with the aid of automatic devices.

While these three categories are common, individual organizations may have their own standards for determining the scope of parapsychology. Jahn and his colleague Brenda Dunne say that the experiments produced "a very small effect" not large enough to be observed over a brief experiment but over a large number of trials resulted in a tiny statistical deviation from chance. [110] According to Massimo Pigliucci the results from PEAR can be explained without invoking the paranormal because of two problems with the experiment "the difficulty of designing machines capable of generating truly random events and the fact that statistical "significance" is not at all a good measure of the importance or genuineness of a phenomenon." [111] Pigluicci has written the statistical analysis used by the Jahn and the PEAR group relied on a quantity called a " p-value " but a problem with p-values is that if the sample size (number of trials) is very large like PEAR then one is guaranteed to find artificially low p-values indicating a statistical "significant" result even though nothing was occurring other than small biases in the experimental apparatus. [111] Two German independent scientific groups have failed to replicate the PEAR results. [111] Pigliucci has written this was "yet another indication that the simplest hypothesis is likely to be true: there was nothing to replicate." [111] The most recent meta-analysis on psychokinesis was published in Psychological Bulletin, along with several critical commentaries.

It would have been, however, quite as reasonable to expect some such effect as PK from a rational interpretation of ESP. Parapsychological work was also conducted at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) during this time. He rejected many of these reports, but claimed that 8.8 percent of the population was having actual precognitive dreams. [44] Dreams which appear to be precognitive may in fact be the result of the Law of large numbers. [45] The psychologist Stuart Sutherland has written: Suppose that you can remember ten incidents from a night's dreaming, at least when prompted by a similar incident occurring a day.

Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research, 72, 1-21. To qualify as a genuine instance of precognition an experience must refer to a coming event to an extent that is more than merely accidental; it must identify a future happening that could not have been inferred as about to occur; and, finally, it must refer to an event that could not have been brought about as a consequence of the prediction. Results: The first precognitive dream studies were carried out in the early 1970s at the Maimonides laboratory in New York, and obtained positive results.
