Complete title: Terminal Lucidity: An Overview, Contextualization and Outlook

Presented on May 12, 2019 for the Parapsychology Research and Education: Survival after Death online course sponsored by the Parapsychology Foundation and organized and moderated by the Alvarado Zingrone Institute of Research and Education, a virtual project of Alvarado, Zingrone & Associates.

The presenter is Dr Michael Nahm, is a Research Associate at the Institute for Frontier Areas of Psychology and Mental Health (IGPP) in Freiburg. His parapsychology-related research interests include unusual phenomena in near-death states, enigmas of evolution, physical mediumship, and the history of parapsychology. He has authored or co-authored more than 100 publications in scientific journals and other research outlets, and published two books in German, one of them on terminal lucidity and other near-death phenomena.

Abstract: Terminal lucidity concerns unexpected return of mental clarity and memory shortly before death in patients suffering from severe psychiatric and neurologic disorders. The most remarkable cases are reported from people whose diseases involve destruction of brain tissue as in, for example, tumors, strokes, and Alzheimer’s disease. In this presentation, I will provide an overview on the phenomenology of terminal lucidity, discuss its relation to other phenomena reported from near-death states, and introduce current and future research perspectives.
