Parapsychology & Psychical Research
American Society for Psychical Research
The ASPR is the oldest psychical research organisation in
the United States. For more than a century, the ASPR has supported the scientific
investigation of extraordinary or as yet unexplained phenomena that have been
called psychic or paranormal. The ASPR was founded in 1885 by a distinguished
group of scholars who shared the courage and vision to explore the uncharted
realms of human consciousness.
