A collaboration with the University of Washington and the Noetic Sciences Institute.

Research Objectives
The long-term goal of this project is to develop and utilize neurophysiological techniques in the emerging field of mind-body medicine, specifically, the possibility that conscious states can instigate biological effects at a distance (i.e., "distant healing").

Purpose of the Clinic
The purpose of the study is to attempt to replicate the EEG findings from the 1994 Grinberg-Zylberbaum et al. study, which suggests that visually evoked potentials generated in one human brain (Subject A) by photostimulation can generate a correlated EEG signal in the brain of another human subject (Subject B) who is located at a distance (14.5 meters) and is not visually stimulated.
