Grinberg-Zylberbaum experiment

In another forum a believer has cited the Grinberg-Zylberbaum experiment, whose purpose was to determine whether visual evoked potentials generated in one human brain by photostimulation could generate a correlated EEG signal in the brain of another human subject who is located at a distance and who is not visually stimulated.

Googling only provided confirmation of the studies. Can any of you provide convincing contrary arguments?

Wow.

Now, this is a difficult one for me, because I was personally involved. Yes, I worked at the lab with him. I have been doing other things in the past 11 years, and it still amazes me when I see the experiment is still being replicated. We did it back at the beginning of the 90s.

As for the results, my personal opinion is that they were not conclusive. I have to state, again, that this is my personal opinion, which might be very different from the others implicated in the experiment.

Oh, and just the first link works.

Sorry for bumping this really old thread, but does anybody have this article and would be able to send it to me? I've been searching high and low for it. Even the staff at the University Library of my school can't seem to get hold of it.

I don't believe it is online, but you can find it here:

Grinberg-Zulberbaum J, Delaflor J, Attie L, Goswami L. The Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox in the brain: The transferred potential. Physics Essays 1994, 7(4), 422-428.

What do you want to know?

From what I read the occurance of a positive result was roughly 1 in 4, which is nothing new.
