1 Enright, R. (2004). Silent journey: The discovery of the near-death experience of a nonverbal adolescent. Journal of Near-Death Studies, 22(3), 195-208

Abstract: This article relates the story of a boy who had a near-death experience at the age of 8, but who, because brain trauma left him quadriplegic and nonverbal, was unable to talk about his experience until I discovered it serendipitously 6 years later. Being able to tell his story and have his experience validated brought about significant changes in his emotional state, helped return personal control over his life, and ultimately led to his peaceful and fulfilling death.

2 Irwin, H. J. (1987). Out-of-body experiences in the blind. Journal of Near-Death Studies, 6(1), 53-60

Abstract: The theoretical significance of out-of-body experiences in blind people is explored. In this context I report results of a survey of a small sample of blind adults. It is concluded that we have yet to locate a case of an out-of-body experience in the blind that has critical implications for the interpretation of the experience among the general population.

Abstract: This article reports the results of an investigation into near-death and out-of-body experiences in 31 blind respondents. The study sought to address three main questions: (1) whether blind individuals have near-death experiences (NDEs) and, if so, whether they are the same as or different from those of sighted persons; (2) whether blind persons ever claim to see during NDEs and out-of-body experiences (OBEs); and (3) if such claims are made, whether they can ever be corroborated by reference to independent evidence. Our findings revealed that blind persons, including those blind from birth, do report classic NDEs of the kind common to sighted persons; that the great preponderance of blind persons claim to see during NDEs and OBEs; and that occasionally claims of visually-based knowledge that could not have been obtained by normal means can be independently corroborated. We present and evaluate various explanations of these findings before arriving at an interpretation based on the concept of transcendental awareness.

1 Cook, E. W., Greyson, B., & Stevenson, I. (1998). Do any near-death experiences provide evidence for survival of human personality after death? Relevant features and illustrative case reports. Journal of Scientific Exploration, 12(3), 377-406

Abstract: One of the main reasons that near-death experiences have generated so much interest in recent years among the general public is because they seem to provide evidence that consciousness survives the death of the physical body. It is puzzling, therefore, that most researchers -- both those interested in NDEs and those interested in survival research -- have neglected to address the question of whether NDEs do provide evidence for survival. We describe three features of NDEs -- enhanced mentation, the experience of seeing the physical body from a different position in space, and paranormal perceptions -- that we believe might provide convergent evidence supporting the survival hypothesis. We then describe 7 published cases and 7 cases from our own collection that contain all three features. These cases are all -- with one possible exception -- somewhat deficient with regard to their recording and investigation, but they exemplify the type of case that should be identified earlier and investigated more thoroughly than these have been, and that may then help us decide the extent to which NDEs can contribute to the evidence for survival of consciousness after death.

2 Owens, J. E., Cook, E. W., & Stevenson, I. (1990). Features of 'near-death experience' in relation to whether or not patients were near death. Lancet, 336(8), 1175-1177

Abstract: The medical records of 58 patients, most of whom believed they were near death during an illness or after an injury and all of whom later remembered unusual experiences occurring at the time, were examined. 28 patients were judged to have been so close to death that they would have died without medical intervention; the other 30 patients were not in danger of dying although most of them thought they were. Patients of both groups reported closely similar experiences but patients who really were close to death were more likely than those who were not to report an enhanced perception of light and enhanced cognitive powers. The claim of enhancement of cognitive functions despite the likelihood that brain function had probably become disturbed and possibly diminished, deserves further investigation.

Abstract: In the cases of 107 patients who reported unusual experiences during an illness or injury, such as seeing their own body from a different position in space, medical records were obtained for forty patients. These were examined and rated according to the evidence they provided of grave, 1ife-threatening illness or injury. Eighteen patients (45%) were judged to have had serious, life-threatening illnesses or injuries, but twenty-two (55%) were rated as having had no life-threatening condition. Nevertheless, thirty-three (82.5%) of the patients believed that they had been 'dead' or near death. Deficiencies in the medical records may account for a few of the discrepancies between patients' reports and medical records. However, it seems likely that an important precipitator of the so-called near-death experience is the belief that one is dying-whether or not one is in fact close to death.

1 Greyson, B. (1994). Near-death experiences and satisfaction with life. Journal of Near-Death Studies, 13(2), 103-108

Abstract: Near-death experiences (NDEs) are reported to produce positive changes in attitudes, beliefs, and values that might be expected to enhance the experiencers' satisfaction with life. Global satisfaction with life was examined among a sample of self-selected near-death experiencers, individuals who had come close to death without an NDE, and individuals who had never been close to death. NDErs' life satisfaction was not different from that of the two control groups, suggesting that problems readjusting to life after an NDE may offset any enhanced life satisfaction that may result from positive personality transformation.

NDE Index

Near-Death Experiences:
Index to the Periodical Literature through 2011

If you are a scholarly researcher, or anyone interested in an in-depth understanding of near-death experiences (NDEs), you have just accessed a resource to nearly die for. At this one location, you can find citations (listing of article author, year of publication, title, journal, issue number, and page numbers) and most abstracts (brief introductory summary) for all scholarly articles, and many popular articles, written about NDEs through 2011 -- a total of nearly 950 articles. With this powerful tool, users can easily search the database by author or subject matter to find just the articles they need. The development team at the University of North Texas has analyzed each article to determine which of about 135 NDE-related topics the article addresses. Thus, you can search the listing three ways:

  • Index - Citations lists all citations in alphabetical order by the sole or first author's last name.
  • Index - Topics lists each of about 135 topics with all articles that addressed that topic, listed in alphabetical order.
  • Index - Authors lists all articles a given author has written, whether as sole, first, second, or later author, listed in alphabetical order.

With this invaluable tool, scholarly researchers and members of the public can find virtually every article addressing a particular NDE-related topic. Through article abstracts that appear for over 98% of articles that originally included abstracts, researchers are further helped to identify just those articles that are relevant to their particular areas of inquiry.

Tips for using this Index:

If you are researching one or more NDE-related topics:

  • First familiarize yourself with the Topics Outline to determine which topic(s) are relevant to your research.
  • Then go to the Index - Topics, find your topic, and click on Show Citations. Virtually every article ever published that addressed that topic is listed in alphabetical order.
  • To create your own customized citations listing, open a word processing document (or, if you want to be able to alphabetize your citations, a spreadsheet), and when you find a relevant citation in the Index, copy and paste it into your document.

This research tool is the product of a collaboration between the University of North Texas (UNT), located just north of Dallas and Fort Worth, and the International Association for Near-Death Studies. It is the hope of the UNT development team to find the funding to update the Index in 2011 and every five years thereafter.
