Research continued throughout the period in the field of training psychic abilities in children. In March, 1992, seven Hangzhou University researchers did a six-month experimental study of training schoolchildren to ''read with the ear'' (develop visual perception through body parts other than the eye). This project, led by Tian Weishun and Zhu Huizhong, involved 1222 students from elementary through high school, of which 623 were boys and 599 were girls. The training method involved introducing the concept of reading with the ear and instructing them to clear their heads and concentrate. They then checked the children's abilities in tests proctored by their schoolteachers. Their results were that 12.35 percent of children aged seven to thirteen had the power, but only one female aged 17 had the power among the students from ages 14 to 18. The best age for training the ability was found to be nine, at which age the success rate was around 20 percent. Go here for amazing information---
