HISTORY OF THE EYE-SIGNALING METHOD FROM LUCID DREAMS:

Psychologist Keith Hearne made his famous discovery concerning ocular-signaling from the lucid dream state on the morning of 12th April 1975, at Hull (England) University’s sleep-laboratory. He communicated the data, and other examples, to Professor Allan Rechtschaffen of Chicago University. Prof. William Dement at Stanford University was also informed. Much later, Stephen LaBerge, at Stanford, produced similar work.

From 1976, Hearne’s lucid-dream discoveries, including the eye-signaling method, were described by him in various newspaper interviews, and on TV and radio.

N.B. The first official, academic public presentation of Hearne’s findings of his lucid-dream sleep-lab research were given in a paper read at a 1977 Conference:

‘Eye-movement communication from lucid-dreams – a new technique and initial findings’. 11th Post-graduate – postdoctoral Conference in the Behavioural Sciences. Hull University, England, April 15 – 18th, 1977. The Conference papers were published.
