Dr. Johnson’s first contact with abduction experiences was just after a fellow renowned Harvard physician, Dr. John Mack, referred one of his abductee patients to him. After hearing of the abductee’s experiences, Dr. Johnson continued to research the phenomena and has unearthed an incredible amount of material. From ever-advancing neuroimaging technology, to increased professional interest from across the world, Dr. Johnson has been at the forefront of the medical investigations of abduction, leading him to develop the unforgettable lecture he will present at Contact in the Desert 2019.
