Online Precognitive Dream Survey - participants needed please!

Below is a message from my PhD student Milan Valasek - hope you can help.

*Precognitive dream research*

Hello,

I am a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh, UK and I am running a study on precognitive dreams (dreams that provide information about future events which cannot be obtained by any other means) and more. The study consists of a single online questionnaire that takes between 10 and 30 minutes to complete and is strictly anonymous. I am posting on this page because I need a rather large sample of people with precognitive dream experience and I am hoping to find people like that here.

If you are interested in contributing to the knowledge of this fascinating yet, sadly, under-explored topic, please follow (or even share!) this link where you will find further information:

Thanks for your help,

Milan

Parapsychology Trial Registry Launched

A webpage for registering parapsychological experiments has been implemented by the Koestler Parapsychology Unit (KPU) at the University of Edinburgh, with Jim Kennedy advising on the development of the registry. The value of study registration for a controversial area such as parapsychology has been mentioned many times over the years. Prospective registration of experiments provides a database for research synthesis that is not subject to possible reporting or publication biases. Registration also increases confidence by providing clear evidence that the key hypotheses and analyses were planned prior to conducting the experiment. Among other benefits, registration should be of value to editors and reviewers during the publication process. Registration of experiments is a well-established practice in medical research and enhances the credibility of a study.

The KPU registry webpage is at:
http://www.koestler-parapsychology.psy.ed.ac.uk/TrialRegistry.html

Other options for study registration may become available in the future. The KPU registry webpage is also intended to serve as a resource that provides information about other registration options as they become available.
