The remote anomalous cognition (AC) experiment in which guessing is performed by many participants simultaneously is reported. Sixty-two
participants, who have not claimed to have anomalous mental functions, guessed the location and the behavior of the target person simultaneously and recorded their mentation. The mentation reports were compared to records of the target person's behavior and ordered according to the degree of their coincidence. A significant hit rate about one target person was obtained in one session out of the two, each of which contained three target persons. The background electroencephalograms (EEGs) and the auditory evoked potentials (AEPs) of one target person were measured during the session, and the change in AEP was obtained during the AC period. The results were interesting, but are not sufficient evidence of AC because of the small number of data; further studies are needed to elucidate AC.
