The mission of the Laboratories for Fundamental Research is three-fold. That is, to use the tools of modern behavioral, physiological, and physical sciences to:
- Determine which psi phenomena can be validated under strict laboratory conditions.
- Understand the mechanisms behind these phenomena.
- Examine the degree to which they might contribute to practical applications.
The laboratory is a center for interdisciplinary research devoted to understanding a wide range of human experience. In addition to exploring parapsychological phenomena, the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory’s charter extends to allied fields such as consciousness research, cognitive neuroscience, perception, physiology, psychology and physics.
