If we proceed purely from the name "extrasensory", that is, supersensible, then for example it is Joy Milne who can distinguish Parkinson's disease by smell

If you mean whether the spirits of ancestors appeared to someone in order to transfer them to another dimension or something similar, then no.

There are only a few interesting personalities in this sense, like Leonora Piper (https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9F%D0%B0%D0%B9%D0%BF%D0%B5%D1%80,_%D0%9B%D0%B5% D0% BE% D0% BD% D0% BE% D1% 80% D0% B0). There is no point in telling something briefly, everything is in the article on Wiki, whether this is convincing for you at least to some extent or not is another question.

You can remember Daniel Hume (https: // ru .wikipedia.org / wiki /% D0% A5% D1% 8C% D1% 8E% D0% BC, _% D0% 94% D1% 8D% D0% BD% D0% B8% D0% B5% D0% BB_% D0% 94% D0% B0% D0% BD% D0% B3% D0% BB% D0% B0% D1% 81) which was tested by people like O. Lodge, W. Crookes, W. Barrett, C. Lombroso, and he has never been convicted of fraud. But again in those days there was no specific procedure and all those possibilities to control the subject as it is now, so whether this seems convincing or not is an open question

I do not know how about the evidence (especially scientific) of the presence of such abilities, but the best proof of the ABSENCE of extrasensory abilities is considered the "Test of James Randy". James Randy announced a prize first of $ 1000, then $ 10,000, and then, after the donation of an unknown person in 2002, the amount was increased to $ 1,000,000. The money was supposed to be given to someone who, under the conditions of a correct experiment, would demonstrate any psychic, supernatural or paranormal abilities ... During the existence of the test, no one received $ 1 million, although there were about 50 applications per year - no one was able to prove the fact of possessing such abilities within the framework of a correct experiment. The trial is now closed, the fund has sent money to other projects.
