Practical applications of mental nonlocal perceptual and interactive characteristics.

With this project, we aim at investigating all possible practical applications of the nonlocal perceptual and interaction characteristics of human mind.

This project was funded by the Bial Foundation with the grant 29/18, 2018-2020.


General introduction:

Tressoldi, P., & Pederzoli, L. (2018). Mental Technologies: mental acquisition of information and influence at distance on the behaviour, physiology and emotions of human beings, and on biological and physical targets.

a) As far as it concerns the capacity to obtain  information at distance, we aim to develop automatic detection of information exchanged between pair of participants, by analysing their EEG activity.

b) In order to exploit the nonlocal interaction with electronic apparatuses, we are devising technical devices that may be triggered mentally at distance.
