From GhostbusterS to The X-FileS to Medium, audiences are fascinated by portrayals of people whose abilities seem difficult to explain in ordinary ways. In real life, women and men claiming to have psychic abilities are, by and large, either ridiculed as fakes or marginalized as pathological. But are all reported extrasensory experiences the work of a duplicitior or a deranged mind? Is there scientific evidence to support the possibility of genuine psychic episodes?About the Author:
