Dr. Parnia, in collaboration with Dr. Peter Fenwick, conducted a landmark prospective study of NDEs at Southampton General Hospitals in England that was published in the journal Resuscitation. He co-authored with Jan Holden, EdD, the talk on "Veridical Perception in NDEs" at the 2006 IANDS conference.

A graduate of Guys and St. Thomas' medical schools in London, Dr. Parnia founded the Consciousness Research Group at the University of Southampton in the U.K. He is also a Specialist Registrar in Internal and Respiratory Medicine in the North West Thames Region in London. His prospective study with Dr. Fenwick of near-death experiences received widespread coverage in the national and international press. He has described that study and its implications in his 2006 book, What Happens When We Die: A Groundbreaking Study into the Nature of Life and Death.
