Psychophysical Research Laboratories
An organization founded in 1979 by James S. McDonnell at
the Forrestal Research Center, Princeton, New Jersey. It was
devoted to laboratory investigation of psi phenomena, extrasensory
perception, and psychokinesis. Under its director,
Charles Honorton, it became known as the location of experiments
using the Ganzfeld procedures, the subject of major controversy
within parapsychology in the 1980s. The center closed
in the late 1980s due to a lack of financial resources.
