Washington Research Center and
Parapsychology Group
The Washington Research Center and Parapsychology
Group was founded in 1982 by Russian-American parapsychologist
Larissa Vilenskaya (b. 1948). Vilenskaya had been involved
in parapsychological research throughout the 1970s at
the Research Institute of General and Pedagogical Psychology
of the USSR Academy of Sciences. She moved to the United
States in 1981. The center published a journal, Psi Research,
which made an effort at informing an English-speaking audience
of research being conducted in Russia, Eastern Europe,
and China.
