The second post of this series is about articles by members of the Division of Perceptual Studies , researchers who conduct research and write about phenomena related to the issue of survival of bodily death. The Division, part of the Department of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences of the University of Virginia, was founded by the late Dr. Ian Stevenson  and is currently directed by Bruce Greyson.

The website of the Division has a page presenting links to many articles, some of which appear below. In addition to articles by Stevenson and Greyson, there are some by Emily Kelly, Jim Tucker, and a few other authors. While I  am also affiliated to the Division, a selection of my online papers appear in another blog.

The following are only a few examples of the articles available in the Division’s page.  I encourage readers to check many other links to other papers in the page.
