Rhine Research Center

The Rhine Research Center Institute for Parapsychology, named after its founder Joseph Banks Rhine, is a parapsychology research unit that "aims to improve the human condition by creating a scientific understanding of those abilities and sensitivities that appear to transcend the ordinary limits of space and time."[1] It is the successor to the Parapsychology Laboratory at Duke University and Rhine's later laboratory, the Foundation for Research on the Nature of Man.[2] Duke University severed its affiliation with the Parapsychology Laboratory during the 1960s after Rhine retired.[3] The Rhine Research Center continues to conduct parapsychology research today, but has expanded doing related mind/body health research and maintains a relationship with Duke University Medical Center.
