 for Parapsychology
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  parapsychology \par`a*psy*chol"o*gy\ n.
     The field of study concerned with psychological phenomena not
     explainable by the laws of physics, especially extrasensory
     perception, telepathy, psychokinesis, precognition, and
     clairvoyance.
  
     Note: The field is controversial, most scientists holding the
           opinion that the supposed phenomena observed result
           from poor experimental design, or are mere statistical
           artifacts or in some cases deliberate fraud.
