David Luke (The University of Northampton)

Treadwells Bookshop, 34 Tavistock St., Covent Garden, London.

15th November, 2007 (Thursday)- 7.15 for 7.30 pm start

Dr David Luke returns by popular demand to Treadwell's, to talk further on the subject that enchanted his audience here last April. He clarifies for the occult audience the current state of academic thought on PSI effects, highlighting some of the features of most interest to practising magicians and to others who have an interest in 'results magic'. David talks about the conditions that, according to academic study, appear to increase the likelihood of people effecting statistically significant results.

David Luke has just finished his doctoral thesis at the Centre for the Study of Anomalous Psychological Processes at the University of Northampton, where he is also an occasional visiting lecturer. Northampton is the nation’s most important centre for scholars of parapsychology.
