The staff of the Division welcomes information about unusual or anomalous experiences that appear to challenge normal explanations. Click here for a description of our research.
If you would like to submit a case (your own or one known to you) please write a detailed description of the experience. We strongly prefer to have information about cases and personal accounts sent to us in writing, either in a detailed email sent to DOPS@virginia.edu or U.S. post sent to:
The Division of Perceptual Studies,
Attention: Research Coordinator
P.O. Box 800152,
Charlottesville, VA 22908.
Please do not send recordings with accounts or long manuscripts.
Persons submitting reports of unusual experiences should be willing to participate in research, which often involves questionnaires and sometimes interviews. Identities of persons sharing experiences with us will be carefully concealed in any published report. We regret, however, that the small size of our staff sometimes makes it impossible for us to investigate every case brought to our attention.
We would like to hear from you. All comments and questions welcome:
