Psychic Research Association Development Association
"The first step" psychic Research Association was founded, is the collection and investigation of cases do extraordinary ability and published academic works, in order to establish strict procedures, the provisions of the association must have a witness or evidence in order to accept the investigation. For example, a person claiming he has the ability to predict, then he predicted future events, there is no prior record as written in the diary (evidence), or told anyone (witness), if there is a requirement set up, new cases can be sent back to investigate, and recording, analysis and the establishment of archives and published. In three, the association was founded forty years ago, the main research work is in the collection of cases, including telepathy, clairvoyance, Nianli, predict the future, smart and reincarnation etc..
By the early twentieth Century, late 1920s, some changes, some European and American universities such as Duke University, University of Edinburgh in the school formally established the Department to engage in teaching and research ability, the Department called the Department of parapsychology (Department of Parapsychology) "is also in Psychology (Psychology) and a para. A. And the paranormal research called game (PSI) phenomenon, the only game for the Greek alphabet pronunciation, on behalf of unknown meaning, has similar meaning with the popular TV series "X" in the X file.

In doing such as telepathy experiment, using the random number to draw a card drawn by the experimenter card, asked subjects to correct induction pattern, so repeated dozens or hundreds of times and then according to the probability and statistics theory, to determine the induction of subjects the correct number belongs to probability the probability of category or far more than has statistically significant. This super psychology will get rid of the traditional case collection, and entered the realm of Parapsychology, and Dr. Rhine is also known as the father of modern experimental parapsychology.
After 60 years of experimental research, the existence of the basic part of game phenomenon, also developed many theories to explain these phenomena, but it is a pity that there is no consensus.

A super Department of psychology, University is spreading to Asia such as Japan's Defense University and the University of New England in Australia. China can only find a relevant academic journals in the central library, the university library was not so, although there are domestic paranormal history and traditional long, but the enthusiasm of academic circles is far behind the West and japan.
