After qualifying in clinical psychology at the Tavistock Clinic, Adrian Parker was the recipient of the Perrott-Warrick Studentship in psychical research, Trinity College, Cambridge and became the first to gain a UK doctorate with a thesis on psi from the University of Edinburgh. He is author of the book States of Mind, and innovated with Honorton and Braud the psi-ganzfeld protocol.  He worked in child psychiatry and studied medical sciences before accepting a position at Gothenburg University, where a major award from the Swedish State Bank enabled development of the “Real Time Digital Ganzfeld” – now a benchmark procedure for capturing high quality psi events in the laboratory. He was Editor of the European Journal of Parapsychology 20002004 and helped establish the Thorsen professorship in parapsychology. He is professor at Gothenburg University, where he is currently carrying out research into lucid dream states and exceptional experiences among twins.
