What is Parapsychology?

Parapsychology is the study of alleged psychic phenomena (extrasensory perception, telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, a.k.a. telekinesis, and psychometry) and other paranormal claims, such as near-death experiences, synchronicity, apparitional experiences, and so on, is known as parapsychology. It is regarded as pseudoscience by the vast majority of mainstream scientists. Parapsychology research is almost never published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. The majority of parapsychology papers are published in a small number of niche journals. After more than a century of research, parapsychology has been chastised for continuing to investigate despite being unable to provide convincing evidence for the existence of any psychic phenomena.
