Regarding Anomalous Cognition And Perturbation
File 6852 of the Star Gate Interactive Archive reveals a paper outlining areas of interest for Cognitive Science Research and Applications. It appears to have been written by Dr. Edwin May, but the author's name is missing.
The author describes two types of Anomalous Phenomena: Cognition and Perturbation. He further divides the Cognition aspect of the research and applications side into three categories: Detector, Transmission, and Source and then lists research areas appropriate to each.
Today I will give an overview of the cognition aspect and leave the perturbation aspect overview for the next blog.
Central Nervous System

Personality Definitions (Behavioral/Self-report- Q-Sort/MSTI)
