Congratulations to Ross Friday, co-awardee of this year's Robert Morris Student Travel Grant for his participation at the upcoming PA-SPR convention.

As a postgraduate researcher, lecturer and writer, Ross Friday's laboratory-based experiments are unique in fusing parapsychological, neuroscientific, anomalistic, and social factors to investigate how beliefs and experiences shape our lives and to what extent they determine our actions and abilities. His work is based at the University of Greenwich where he gained a First Class Psychology degree investigating the psychological variables that may explain Electronic Voice Phenomena. Ross was recently made an accredited member of the British Psychological Society, and is now examining whether individuals can be aware they are under surveillance via extrasensory means, and which subconscious, psychosocial and neurological factors may predict belief in this ability as his current PhD thesis. Together with his mentor PA professional member Dr. David Luke, Ross has published various papers on subjects such as synaesthesia, and whether the use of psychedelics can enhance individuals’ ability to psychically predict outcomes.

At the PA-SPR convention, Ross will be presenting a paper titled Individual differences in psychosocial and neurological predictors of survelliance detection via extrasensory means. Psychic detection of attention has been restricted to scopaesthesia – a phenomenon in which people respond via non-conventional means to being the subject of another persons’ gaze. However this new research will incorporate the sense of being heard as well as seen, which will be gauged by participants’ reports of being watched and/or listened to, behavioral differences during surveillance, and their physiological reactions.
