A sender and a percipient were located separately in two
sensory-shielded rooms, and extrasensory transfer of information was
attempted while both were connected to electroencephalographs. The
sender transmitted information without using the senses during a
randomly selected half of a two-minute period. The percipient attempted
to guess both the content and the time period. Over 20 trials, the
percipient was not able to guess the correct sending time with any
statistical significance. However, a statistically significant
difference was observed in the alpha wave amplitude in her
electroencephalogram between the sending and non-sending time zones.
This suggests the existence of extrasensory information transfer in the
subconscious. This extrasensory information transfer is not completed
just after the reaction in the sender's brain, but is composed of two
reactions. The first reaction occurs in the occipital to parietal
region of the percipient and is followed by a reaction in the frontal
