Rhine Research Center
The Rhine Research Center is a nonprofit organization devoted
to parapsychological research and education. Established
as the Foundation for Research on the Nature of Man
in 1962 by J. B. Rhine and renamed in 1995, the RRC comprises
two subsidiaries The Institute for Parapsychology and
Parapsychology Press. The institute is the research arm of the
RRC, and its staff conducts experimental research into the apparently
psychic (psi) functions of extrasensory perception
(ESP) and psychokenisis (PK). As the designated successor to
Rhine’s famous Duke University Parapsychology Laboratory,
the institute maintains access to all records and other properties
acquired by that laboratory during its three decades at
Duke. The Parapsychology Press publishes the Journal of
Parapsychology, a professional quarterly. Recognized worldEncyclopedia
