I have updated my web page on Eminent Researchers to include J. J. Thomson. Thomson was awarded the Nobel prize in physics for discovering the electron. He believed in psychic phenomena and was a member of the Governing Council for the Society for Psychical Research for 34 years.
The update to my web page includes:
Sir Joseph John "J. J." Thomson, OM, FRS (18 December 1856 – 30 August 1940) was a British physicist. He is credited with discovering electrons and isotopes, and inventing the mass spectrometer. Thomson was awarded the 1906 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the electron and for his work on the conduction of electricity in gases.

Thomson is the eleventh Nobelist I know of who believed in paranormal phenomena or that consciousness was non-physical based on their own research, their own experiences, or after studying the research of others. The other Nobelists are:
- Max Planck - Believed consciousness is not physical based on his own research.
- Wolfgang Pauli - Believed that his own unconscious PK wrecked experimental equipment.
- Erwin Schrödinger - Believed consciousness is not physical based on his own research.
- Brian D. Josephson - Believed in the results of ESP research.
- Charles Robert Richet - From his own research believed in macro PK, precognition, anomalous cognition, and ectoplasm.
- John William Strutt - Believed physical mediumship was a serious field of study based on his personal observations.
- Marie Curie - Observed physical mediums hoping the phenomena might lead to an understanding of radioactivity.
- Pierre Curie - Same as Marie Curie, attested to genuineness of physical mediumship.
- Eugene Wigner - Believed consciousness is fundamental.
- John Eccles - Neurophysiologist who believed the brain did not produce consciousness and that promissory materialism is superstition.
Other Eminent Researchers:
- Charles Darwin - Believed natural laws were designed, this is a form of intelligent design.
- Alan Turing - Believed in the results of ESP research.
- Wernher von Braun - Believed consciousness survives death.
- David Bohm - Believed in the results of parapsychology.
- Karl Popper - Believed in dualism (which falsifies materialism).
- Sir William Crookes - Invented cathode-ray tube, believed in survival after death and proved macro PK in 1871.
- Sir Robert Boyle - Discoverer of Boyle's law, studied laying on of hands healing healing, attested to the results.
