The study was conducted to examine brain activities for induced paranormal experience and also to examine the difference between memory for remembrance andrecognftion. The research design was prepared on the basis of gap found in the previous researches. This was the first kind of study which was conducted to study induced paranormal experience using BEOS instrument. Parapsychology is a field of study concerned with the investigation of paranormal and psychic phenomena which include telepathy, precognrtion, clairvoyance, psycho-kinesis, near-death experiences, reincarnation, apparitional experiences, and other paranormal claims. The BEOS profiling test uses a recording of brain electrical activity as a parameter, the NSS System records the electrical activity of the brain produced while presenting stimuli in the form of auditory and visual probes. BEOS is used for eliciting electro physiological evidence of a person's participation in the event. It is a non-invasive scientific method of interrogation. To determine the presence of specific information in the brain. A Neuro-psychological method generally referred as Brain Fingerprinting The study consisted sample size of 16 participants, they were further classified into experimental and control groups. Experimental group was presented with 100 minutes of horror video, whereas control group was provided with the narration of the video. Both the groups were instructed to fill Revised Paranormal Belief Scale prior to BEOS recording, to examine the level of paranormal belief of the participants. The findings of the study supported all the hypotheses formulated. The results revealed that, the experimental group were elicited more number of visual imagery recall responses as compared to control group and control group elicited more number of information recall responses as compared to experimental group. In addition to this, the study also revealed gender differences in eliciting visual imagery recall and information recall responses. The female participants elicited more number of visual imagery recall responses as compared to male participants, whereas male participants elicited more number of information recall responses as compared to female participants. In the study it was observed that, female participants had slightly high paranormal belief as compared to male participants. Therefore it can be concluded that, BEOS instrument can differentiate between memory for remembrance and recognition.

Abstract


The study was conducted to examine brain activities for induced paranormal experience and also to examine the difference between memory for remembrance andrecognftion. The research design was prepared on the basis of gap found in the previous researches. This was the first kind of study which was conducted to study induced paranormal experience using BEOS instrument. Parapsychology is a field of study concerned with the investigation of paranormal and psychic phenomena which include telepathy, precognrtion, clairvoyance, psycho-kinesis, near-death experiences, reincarnation, apparitional experiences, and other paranormal claims. The BEOS profiling test uses a recording of brain electrical activity as a parameter, the NSS System records the electrical activity of the brain produced while presenting stimuli in the form of auditory and visual probes. BEOS is used for eliciting electro physiological evidence of a person's participation in the event. It is a non-invasive scientific method of interrogation. To determine the presence of specific information in the brain. A Neuro-psychological method generally referred as Brain Fingerprinting The study consisted sample size of 16 participants, they were further classified into experimental and control groups. Experimental group was presented with 100 minutes of horror video, whereas control group was provided with the narration of the video. Both the groups were instructed to fill Revised Paranormal Belief Scale prior to BEOS recording, to examine the level of paranormal belief of the participants. The findings of the study supported all the hypotheses formulated. The results revealed that, the experimental group were elicited more number of visual imagery recall responses as compared to control group and control group elicited more number of information recall responses as compared to experimental group. In addition to this, the study also revealed gender differences in eliciting visual imagery recall and information recall responses. The female participants elicited more number of visual imagery recall responses as compared to male participants, whereas male participants elicited more number of information recall responses as compared to female participants. In the study it was observed that, female participants had slightly high paranormal belief as compared to male participants. Therefore it can be concluded that, BEOS instrument can differentiate between memory for remembrance and recognition.
