Article exploring the hypothesis that near-death experiencers (NDErs) assign the meaning of the NDE by using causal (effect) and semantic (affect) attributions. To test this hypothesis, 32 spontaneous verbal accounts of NDEs were analyzed.
Quarterly journal publishing papers related to near-death experiences, including research reports; theoretical or conceptual statements; expressions of a scientific, philosophic, religious, or historical perspective on the study of near-death experiences; cross-cultural studies; individual case histories; and personal accounts of experiences or related phenomena.
Five letters written to the editor of the Journal of Near-Death Studies on the following topics: "Skepticism and Evidence of the Paranormal," "OBEs in the Blind and Encounters with the Light," "Concerning Anesthetically-Induced Frightening NDEs," "Risks of Psychomanteum Experimentation," and "Endorphins Cannot Explain All Aspects or NDEs."
