What are the long-term effects of near-death experiences? Why do some people see sounds and taste smells? What happens during an out-of-bod y experience? These extraordinary and unusual phenomena have often be en ignored or ridiculed by mainstream psychology. In this fascinating volume, leading scholars explore these areas, as well as experiences of hallucinations, lucid dreams, alien abductions, mysticism, anomalou s healings, psi-events and past-lives, in an effort to explain the tot ality of human experience. In an accessible style, contributors revie w and discuss current research about unusual but important events, cre ating a mesmerizing account of activity at the boundaries of conventio nal psychology. The chapters examine current research and theories, m ethodological issues, related psychopathology, individual and cultural differences, aftereffects, and clinical implications of anomalous exp eriences.
