What I notice about this conference, or at least Derbyshire’s coverage of it, is a complete lack of neuroscience and biochemistry. This accounts for the pseudoscience atmosphere that Caledonian alludes to in the previous post.
Derbyshire mentioned several neuroscience talks including a couple at the biochemical level. Based on the few details he provided, I would have enjoyed the conference. (I would have skipped the talks on dog telepathy and the Mayan calendar.)
Razib, thanks for the link.
PS Did they have to use the term, “psi field”…the concept described is reasonable but the terminology just begs for abuse by wackos.
