Strauch, Inge H(enriette) (1932– )
German parapsychologist and research associate in psychology.
She was born on April 4, 1932, in Dresden, Germany, and
studied at Freiburg University (M.A. psychology, 1956; Ph.D.,
1958). While completing her doctorate she was a research associate
at the Institut für Grenzgebiete der Psychologie and Psychohygiene,
Freiburg (1956–58), and after graduation she became
a research associate for the Department for Border Areas
of Psychology at Freiburg University, where she stayed for
many years. She served as managing editor of the Zeitschrift für
Parapsychologie und Grenzgebiete der Psychologie and was an associate
member of the Parapsychological Association.
Her special interest in dream research resulted in her 1960
paper ‘‘Investigations into Various Stages of Dream Recall,’’
which became Report 22 at the 1960 Congress of Deutsche Gesellschaft
für Psychologie. During 1961–62 she undertook a
study tour in the United States and conducted electroencephalographical
research on dreams at New York’s Mount Sinai
Hospital and electroencephalographical studies of the neurological
basis of psychic phenomena at the Parapsychology
Foundation, New York. She also conducted quantitative research
at the Parapsychology Laboratory at Duke University.
