Dr* Freeman and Dr* Pappenheimer have embarked on a set of rigorous self-experiments (Subproject 8 ) based on research conducted in the 1950s by the Office of Scientific Intelligence for the CIA‘s human research program. Code named Project MKULTRA, or MK-ULTRA, the research involved the use of many methodologies to manipulate individual mental states and alter brain function, including the surreptitious administration of drugs and other chemicals, sensory deprivation, isolation, and verbal and sexual abuse.

1. Subproject 8 is being set up as a means to continue the present work in the general field of VF at the Virta-Flanrurazine Laboratories until 11 September 2011.
2. This project will include a continuation of a study of the biomedical, neurophysiological, sociological, and clinical psychiatric aspects of VF, and also a study of VF antagonists and drugs related to VF, such as L.S.D. and Bufotenine.

Experimental goals included: the creation of “hypnotically induced anxieties,” “hypnotically increasing ability to learn and recall complex written matter,” studying hypnosis and polygraph examinations, “hypnotically increasing ability to observe and recall complex arrangements of physical objects,” and studying “relationship of personality to susceptibility to hypnosis.” Experiments are conducted with drug induced hypnosis and with anterograde and retrograde amnesia while under the influence of such drugs.
