He started working with this group in the early eighties when it was at SRI International and has stayed with them since then.

In the human mind there may be an "extraordinary effect that's coming back from the future and affecting the brain earlier in time," said Spottiswoode. Their next such experiment will be held in Los Angeles on March 2nd.
