Random Event Generator (REG)
Electronic apparatus which generates random numbers,
used as targets in a psi test. A basic form of REG is an electronic
coin-tossing machine, generating a series of ‘‘heads and tails’’
outputs. Other REGs have more complex outputs. Tests with
REGs are often conducted in conjunction with computers, so
that the timing and running of the experiment can be mechanically
controlled and analyzed, thus obviating fraud on the part
of the subject, and facilitating evaluation of a long series of
runs.
