Yep, sounds good if you can dig it up. Radin reports, BTW, that this
alleged effect was first noticed in just such data, taken in the 1980s by
someone whose name I've now forgotten (the book's gone back to the
library). But then Benjamin Libet's somewhat similar results have also
been a matter of dispute for years, although I don't think there's ever
been any suggestion that his forerunning electric potential build-ups prior
to conscious intentional acts are due to paranormal info.
