Strauch, Inge H(enriette) (1932-)

German parapsychologist and research associate in psychology. She was born on April 4, 1932, in Dresden, Germany, and studied at Freiburg University (M.A. psychology, 1956; Ph.D., 1958). While completing her doctorate she was a research associate at the Institut für Grenzgebiete der Psychologie and Psychohygiene, Freiburg (1956-58), and after graduation she became a research associate for the Department for Border Areas of Psychology at Freiburg University, where she stayed for many years. She served as managing editor of the Zeitschrift für Parapsychologie und Grenzgebiete der Psychologie and was an associate member of the Parapsychological Association.

Her special interest in dream research resulted in her 1960 paper "Investigations into Various Stages of Dream Recall," which became Report 22 at the 1960 Congress of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Psychologie. During 1961-62 she undertook a study tour in the United States and conducted electroencephalographical research on dreams at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital and electroencephalographical studies of the neurological basis of psychic phenomena at the Parapsychology Foundation, New York. She also conducted quantitative research at the Parapsychology Laboratory at Duke University.
