To fill this gap, ASSAP member Dr Jason Braithwaite designed MADS (Magnetic Anomaly Detection System) specifically to record relevant magnetic fields to see if they occur in allegedly haunted locations. ASSAP helped fund this relatively expensive equipment.
The Fields
Laboratory experiments have demonstrated a particular kind of low-frequency magnetic field that is capable of inducing hallucinations. Jason calls them EIFs - Experience-Inducing Fields. Broadly speaking, they are defined in the table below.
The haunting at the castle has been continuously investigated by Jason for well over a decade.
Tourists often stay overnight on organised 'ghost sits' in the TR hoping to experience something, though it is now possible to join Jason on a limited series of serious investigations he runs every year that are also open to the public.
On 31 March 2004, just after the completion of the successful Muncaster Conference, Jason and Ian Topham put MADS through its paces for the first time in the TR.
These resulted in a paper (Braithwaite, 2004), the first study ever published of time-linked synchronised magnetic measurements at a haunted location.
More experiments took place on 26 and 27 October 2004, with Jason and Maurice Townsend the researchers present.

The project will involve taking psychophysiological measurements (Electrodermal activity), will employ TDCS procedures of brain-stimulation and is under the supervision of Dr Jason Braithwaite, Lecturer, in the School of Psychology. The project is funded by The Leverhulme Trust.

An Interview With Dr Jason Braithwaite
Dr Jason Braithwaite
We recently caught up with Dr Jason Braithwaite, a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of Birmingham with an interest in anomalous experience, hallucinations, and aberrations in self-consciousness. He also has a formidable reputation for being extremely well informed on matters of the brain / mind relationship, and high quality scientific research. Read More >
FYI: Who You Gonna Call? - Popular Science, 19 April 2006 [cached]
For more than a decade, neuropsychologist Jason Braithwaite of the University of Birmingham has been trying to figure out why visitors to Muncaster Castle in England claim to see ghosts in rooms and corridors."People have been having these experiences for hundreds of years, and they deserve a scientific explanation," he says.And although Braithwaite doesn't yet have an explanation for the supernatural shenanigans, he's finding some leads.
Using a device he developed with sensors that measure the strength of these low-frequency EMFs, Braithwaite detected unusual electromagnetic activity below the 50-hertz range in and around the castle.
Bothered by the profusion of paranormal investigators who see the scientific method as optional, Braithwaite recently announced that he's creating the first-ever "ghost school."It will teach anyone who's interested how to investigate paranormal phenomena logically and rigorously.For instance, a thorough investigator might give visitors questionnaires to zero in on locations where many people report feeling spooked and then investigate those areas to see if magnetic fields or chilly drafts might be responsible."The course isn't about teaching people what to think but how to think," Braithwaite says.
He notes, however, that even with extensive research, it might be impossible to definitively disprove the existence of ghosts."Factors like magnetic fields may be potential explanations for some sightings," he says.
