Have you ever volunteered for a research study?  If you’d like to be part of a research study, the Durham-based Rhine Research Center is seeking participants for a study which examines how people interact and affect computer systems.

For those who would like to participate, the Rhine lab is looking for people age 18 or older, who can read/write in English, have basic computer skills, and are interested in taking part in their Parapsychology research.

Their Call for Participants was recently announced:

The Rhine Research Center in Durham is now recruiting participants to be part of a study to examine how people interact with computer systems. The sessions will take approximately 30-40 minutes at the Rhine Lab in Durham, and there is a small monetary compensation for the study. If you are interested in this study, send an email to experiment@rhine.org and include the words COMPUTER STUDY in the subject line. You will be contacted with more information if you are selected to be part of the study.

To participate, email to let them know that you’re interested.  If accepted, you’ll be provided with a link to set an appointment; appointments are available by the hour on days, evenings, and weekends — depending on current availability.

Participating in the study takes a little of your time, but can be an interesting experience. When you get to the Rhine for your appointment, a researcher will explain what you’ll be asked to do. After your participation, you’ll be given an opportunity to ask questions. It is an opportunity to be a part of their research on human consciousness.

The Rhine does research on various topics related to Parapsychology and ESP (Extrasensory Perception). In addition to the current study, additional research studies on ESP are planned in the coming months. Once you register as a research volunteer, they will be able to contact you when studies are about to start.

The Rhine Research Center explores the frontiers of consciousness and exceptional human experiences in the context of unusual and unexplained phenomena.  The Rhine’s mission is to advance the science of parapsychology, to provide education and resources for the public, and to foster a community for individuals with personal and professional interest in PSI. Rhine Research Center is the world’s first facility “built for experimental work in parapsychology”, located at 2741 Campus Walk Avenue, Durham NC. The research facility also houses the Alex Tanous Research Library, and hosts monthly programs on Dream Studies, Psychic Experiences, and more.
