To answer your first question, I'm not aware that the child has
any abnormal medical condition of the type you describe. But
it's my policy not to work with child abductees, and this only
came up in the margins of my work with the child's mother, with
whom I'm still in occasional contact.

On your second question, Michael Persinger has done some
experimental work where he delivers magnetic field pulses to the
brain, firing the temporal lobes, trying to create some of the
effects commonly reported in alien abductions. Sue Blackmore
tried this during the filming of a 1994 documentary for
"Horizon", the prestigious BBC2 science series. While she
reported experiencing a strange pulling sensation, coupled with
strong feelings of anger and fear, there were no UFOs, no
entities, and none of the detailed narrative or motifs that crop
up in alien abduction accounts.

Though they come at it from different angles, researchers such
as Paul Devereux and Albert Budden have done work that is
relevant to your question.

Best wishes,

Nick Pope
