Rhine Research Center

The Rhine Research Center is a nonprofit organization devoted to parapsychological research and education. Established as the Foundation for Research on the Nature of Man in 1962 by J. B. Rhine and renamed in 1995, the RRC comprises two subsidiaries: The Institute for Parapsychology and Parapsychology Press. The institute is the research arm of the RRC, and its staff conducts experimental research into the apparently psychic (psi) functions of extrasensory perception (ESP) and psychokenisis (PK). As the designated successor to Rhine's famous Duke University Parapsychology Laboratory, the institute maintains access to all records and other properties acquired by that laboratory during its three decades at Duke. The Parapsychology Press publishes the Journal of Parapsychology, a professional quarterly. Recognized worldwide as a cornerstone of the professional parapsychological community, the RRC serves the lay public as a reliable resource of authoritative information on psi research. The center is supported through private funding and is sustained in part by memberships. It is currently directed by Richard S. Broughton, 402 N. Buchanan Blvd., Durham, NC 27701-1728.
