Who are we ?

Thomas Rabeyron

I have a PhD in clinical psychology, I am a clinical psychologist (Master in clinical psychology, Lyon II University) and an assistant researcher at Lyon II University. I was previously PhD student at at Edinburgh University (Koestler Parapsychology Unit). My research is focused on clinical counselling about exceptional experiences and their psychopathological aspects. My approach is characterized by the association of models from a psychodynamic approach with data coming from cognitive psychology and neuroscience.

Renaud Evrard

I am a clinical psychologist (Master in clinical psychology, Strasbourg University) and a PhD student in clinical psychology at Rouen University. My research is mainly about haunting experiences, adolescence and occultism, and differential diagnostic about people who live exceptional experiences. I have done an internship at the IGPP (main research center about exceptional experiences in Fribourg, Germany) and have been awarded several grants for my research on exceptional experiences.

David Acunzo

Having completed a degree in engineering (Telecom Bretagne), I am currently a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh within the Neuroinformatics Doctoral Training Centre. I am interested in studying the modulation of visual spatial attention by emotional stimuli. I am using both experimental (in particular psychophysics and EEG) and computational approaches. I also worked as an intern at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory, whose main programme consisted of investigating how pre-stated intentions of a human operator might bias random systems.
