Relations between hypnotisability and psychopathology revisited

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Inspired by a first episode of schizophrenia following within a week of stage hypnosis, we examined relations between schizotypy and hypnotizability with the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility (HGSHS), showing positive associations with 15 items mostly consisting of positive aspects of schizotypy. Here this was re-examined in two further samples. First, with the more cognitively loaded Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scale, Form C, administered individually to Italian, female psychology students. In the second the HGSHS was administered to British medical student volunteers in stress reduction studies. In the first replication 12 correlations were disclosed, all with positive features of schizotypy, nine consisting of unreality experiences, with six items relating to psychic experiences. In the second replication of the 13 positive associations, seven were negative items belonging to the withdrawn syndrome, with six belonging to the social anxiety subscale, a non-specific feature of schizotypy. Across the series of studies, all but one item was interpreted as consistent with associations between hypnotizability and positive schizotypy and social anxiety. Though the items mostly varied from study to study, and despite sampling and scale differences, the outcome clearly merits large scale studies to investigate further the relation between hypnotic susceptibility and psychopathology.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
EEG spectral power and coherence were analyzed under waking baseline condition in 19 high (HH) and 12 low (LH) hypnotizable subjects. In HH subjects, the theta1 and theta2 spectral power was higher than in LH. The major new finding of this study is that coherence between distributed brain regions was sharply elevated in HH subjects within the theta and alpha frequency bands. In contrast, spectral power and coherence of beta2 and gamma1 bands were higher in LH subjects as compared to HH subjects. However, the long distance coherence between frontal and posterior areas within beta-gamma frequency ranges was higher in HH subjects. It might be supposed that HH subjects are engaged in imaginal mental activity whereas LH ones are mainly engaged in linguistic activity. The neurophysiological basis of the obtained EEG differences is discussed.

The neurophenomenology of neutral hypnosis
Publication year: 2013

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0010945212001074
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION:
After a hypnotic induction, medium and highly hypnotizable individuals often report spontaneous alterations in various dimensions of consciousness. Few studies investigating these experiences have controlled for the inherent demands of specific hypnotic suggestions and fewer still have considered their dynamic properties and neural correlates.
METHODS:
We adopted a neurophenomenological approach to investigate neutral hypnosis, which involves no specific suggestion other than to go into hypnosis, with 37 individuals of high, medium, and low hypnotizability (Highs, Mediums, and Lows). Their reports of depth and spontaneous experience at baseline, following a hypnotic induction, and then after multiple rest periods were analyzed and related to EEG frequency band power and global functional connectivity.
RESULTS:
Hypnotizability was marginally associated with lower global functional connectivity during hypnosis. Perceived hypnotic depth increased substantially after the induction especially among Highs and then Mediums, but remained almost unchanged among Lows. In the sample as a whole, depth correlated moderately to strongly with power and/or power heterogeneity for the fast EEG frequencies of beta2, beta3, and gamma, but independently only among Highs. The spontaneous phenomenology of Lows referred primarily to the ongoing experiment and everyday concerns, those of Mediums to vestibular and other bodily experiences, and those of Highs to imagery and positive affect/exceptional experiences. The latter two phenomena were associated with lower global functional connectivity during hypnosis. Imagery correlated positively with gamma power heterogeneity and negatively with alpha1 power heterogeneity. Generally, the pattern of correlations for the Highs was the opposite of that for the Lows.
CONCLUSIONS:
Experienced hypnotic depth and spontaneous phenomena following a neutral hypnotic induction vary as a function of hypnotizability and are related to global functional connectivity and EEG band wave activity.

http://www.researchgate.net/publication/229640198_The_effects_of_translation_and_sex_on_hypnotizability_testing
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We compared hypnotizability between two samples from different universities in Sweden. One test was administered in Swedish (University of Skövde) using a translated Swedish version of the HGSHS: A (Bergman, Trenter and Kallio, 2003). At Lund University, the original English version of the HGSHS?:?A (Shor and Orne, 1962) was used and participants also completed the Inventory Scale of Hypnotic Depth (ISHD; Field, 1965). The results suggest that administering the HGSHS?:?A in English to Swedish University students may only slightly reduce hypnotizability scores. Because the HGSHS: A was designed to be used for the initial screening of hypnotic suggestibility, for most practical purposes the original version seems a valid choice among non-English groups fluent in English. The data also support some recent findings about females exhibiting higher objective and subjective hypnotizability scores than male volunteers.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
19 high (H), 12 medium (M) and 12 low (L) hypnotizable subjects participated in 2 experimental sessions - hypnotic (HS) and waking (WS). EEG (19 sites), heart rate (HR) and skin conduction changes (SC) were recorded during the eyes-closed baseline condition, hypnotic relaxation, and recollection of emotionally neutral, positive and negative past events. EEG spectral analysis was applied.
Subjective scores of image vividness and emotion intensity were significantly higher in H subjects compared to L ones. Distinct increase of HR and SC was observed during the recollection of past events depending on emotional load compared to baseline in the group H both in HS and WS. HR and SC changed insignificantly in the group L. The study showed the stable and significant EEG differences between three groups in all functional conditions, including baseline. Three main EEG features distinguished group H from both other groups - increased spectral power (SP) of theta1 and theta2 bands and significantly higher coherence (Coh) within theta1, theta2, and alpha1 bands; SP and Coh within beta2 and gamma1 ranges were lower in H subjects compared to L ones. These differences were generalized. Greater SP and Coh during HS as compared to WS were found within theta – alpha ranges only for H subjects. No clear SP differences between HS and WS and higher Coh in HS only within alpha range were revealed in L group. The reactive EEG changes during the image and emotional loads were revealed in all frequency ranges in H subjects. In L group SP changes were non-significant both at the low (delta - theta) and high (gamma2) frequency ends of the spectrum, and Coh changes didn’t involve delta - theta ranges. All M subjects’ scores were intermediate between H and L ones. At that, patterns of EEG changes were frequency as well as hemispheric-specific depending on emotional valence only in H subjects. Thus, the ability to experience the emotions and inner images with the close to real life intensity is H subjects’ distinctive feature and is related to the high level of information processing.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Subjective scoring and autonomic variables (heart rate, skin conduction span) were used to verify the reality of inner experience during recollection of emotionally neutral, positive, and negative past events in 19 high (HH) and 12 low (LH) hypnotizable subjects in hypnotic and nonhypnotic experimental sessions. Also, the influence of hypnotizability on the effectiveness of an imagery-based neurolinguistic programming (NLP) technique was evaluated. Results demonstrated that subjective scores of image vividness and emotional intensity were significantly higher in the HH subjects compared to LH in both sessions. The past-events recollection was followed by increased autonomic activity only in the HH subjects. The NLP procedure was followed by decreased negative emotional intensity in both groups, but autonomic activity decline was observed in the HH subjects and not in the LH.

Waking EEG spectral power and coherence differences between high and low hypnotizable subjects
Publication year: 2011

http://ijceh.com/content/view/290/179/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
EEG spectral power and coherence were analyzed under waking baseline condition in 19 high (HH) and 12 low (LH) hypnotizable subjects. In HH subjects, the theta1 and theta2 spectral power was higher than in LH. The major new finding of this study is that coherence between distributed brain regions was sharply elevated in HH subjects within the theta and alpha frequency bands. In contrast, spectral power and coherence of beta2 and gamma1 bands were higher in LH subjects as compared to HH subjects. However, the long distance coherence between frontal and posterior areas within beta-gamma frequency ranges was higher in HH subjects. It might be supposed that HH subjects are engaged in imaginal mental activity whereas LH ones are mainly engaged in linguistic activity. The neurophysiological basis of the obtained EEG differences is discussed.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
The aim of the study was to disclose the EEG and autonomic concomitants of the hypnosis, internal imaging and positive and negative emotional experience in subjects with low, medium and high levels of hypnotic susceptibility.
METHODS:
19 high (H), 12 medium (M) and 12 low (L) hypnotizable subjects participated in 2 experimental sessions - hypnotic (HS) and waking (WS). EEG (19 sites), heart rate (HR) and skin conduction changes (SC) were recorded during the eyes-closed baseline condition, hypnotic relaxation in HS and inner silence condition in WS, and recollection of emotionally neutral, positive and negative past events. EEG spectral power and coherence analysis was applied.
RESULTS:
Subjective scores of image vividness and emotion intensity were significantly higher in H subjects compared to L ones. Distinct increase of HR and SC was observed during the recollection of past events depending on emotional load compared to baseline in the group H both in HS and WS. HR and SC changed insignificantly in the group L. The study showed the stable and significant EEG differences between three groups in all functional conditions, including baseline. Three main EEG features distinguished group H from both other groups - increased spectral power (SP) of theta1 and theta2 bands and significantly higher coherence (Coh) within theta1, theta2, and alpha1 bands; SP and Coh within beta2 and gamma1 ranges were lower in H subjects compared to L ones. These differences were generalized. Greater SP and Coh during HS as compared to WS were found within theta – alpha ranges only for H subjects. No clear SP differences between HS and WS were revealed in L group. The reactive EEG changes during the image and emotional loads were revealed in all frequency ranges in H subjects. In L group SP changes were non-significant both at the low (delta - theta) and high (gamma2) frequency ends of the spectrum, and Coh changes didn’t involve delta - theta ranges. All M subjects’ scores were intermediate between H and L ones. At that, patterns of EEG changes were frequency as well as hemispheric-specific depending on emotional valence only in H subjects.
CONCLUSIONS:
The ability to experience emotions and inner images with the close to real life intensity is H subjects’ distinctive feature that is associated with high theta-alpha1 SP and coherence level in all conditions and encompassing of entire EEG frequency range changes under functional loads.

Hypnotizability, personality traits, and the propensity to experience alterations of consciousness
Publication year: 2014

http://psycnet.apa.org/journals/cns/1/3/292/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
How hypnotizability relates to personality traits other than absorption has received scant attention even though hypnotizability exhibits clear and stable individual differences. Two personality constructs particularly germane to hypnotizability are mental boundaries and self-transcendence, because they seem to index the propensity to experience alterations in consciousness. We conducted 2 studies to evaluate their relations with behavioral and experiential measures of hypnotizability, and with absorption. In Study 1 (N = 112 U.S. participants), experiential, but not behavioral, measures of hypnotizability, correlated with the personal (e.g., porosity in interpersonal relations or in states of consciousness), but not the world (e.g., opinions of others), subscale of boundary thinness and with absorption. In Study 2 (N = 84 Swedish participants), self-transcendence as a whole, as well as 2 of its 3 subscales (self-forgetfulness and transpersonal identification) related to hypnotizability, especially as measured experientially. Absorption correlated with an index of experiential hypnotizability in both studies, but was not reliably related to behavioral hypnotizability. Women scored significantly higher than men in self-transcendence, and indeterminately so in experiential measures of hypnotizability. Our studies suggest that although hypnotizability may not be subsumed under traditional personality traits, it relates to traits involving a propensity to have nonconceptual, self-transcendent modes of experiencing. They also highlight the importance of supplementing behavioral indices of hypnotizability with experiential ones.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
How hypnotizability relates to personality traits other than absorption has received scant attention even though hypnotizability exhibits clear and stable individual differences. Two personality constructs particularly germane to hypnotizability are mental boundaries and self-transcendence, because they seem to index the propensity to experience alterations in consciousness. We conducted 2 studies to evaluate their relations with behavioral and experiential measures of hypnotizability, and with absorption. In Study 1 (N = 112 U.S. participants), experiential, but not behavioral, measures of hypnotizability, correlated with the personal (e.g., porosity in interpersonal relations or in states of consciousness), but not the world (e.g., opinions of others), subscale of boundary thinness and with absorption.

Individual differences and state effects on mind-wandering: Hypnotizability, dissociation, and sensory homogenization
Publication year: 2012

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Consciousness alterations can be experienced during unstructured, monotonous stimuli. These effects have not been linked to particular cognitive operations; individual differences in response to such stimulation remain poorly understood. We examined the role of hypnotizability and dissociative tendencies in mind-wandering (MW) during a sensory homogenization procedure (ganzfeld). We expected that the influence of ganzfeld on MW would be more pronounced among highly hypnotizable individuals (highs), particularly those high in dissociative tendencies. High and low hypnotizables, also stratified by dissociation, completed the sustained attention to response task during ganzfeld and control conditions. High dissociative highs made more commission errors during ganzfeld, suggesting increased MW, whereas the other groups displayed the opposite pattern. Increases in commission errors from the control condition to ganzfeld were associated with more alterations in consciousness and negative affect, but only among highs. Sensory
homogenization had opposite effects onMWdepending on the interaction of hypnotizability and dissociation.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
People have always been fascinated by the extent to which belief or will may influence behavior. Proverbs, like “we tend to get what we expect,” and concepts, such as optimistic thinking or self-fulfilling prophecy, reflect this intuition of an important link between one’s dispositions and subsequent behavior. In other words, one’s predictions directly or indirectly cause them to become true. In a similar manner, every culture, country or religion has their own words for ‘expectation,’ ‘belief,’ ‘disappointment,’ ‘surprise,’ and generally all have the same meaning: under uncertainty, what one expects or believes is the most likely to happen. This relation between what caused a reaction in the past will probably cause it again in the future might not be realistic. If the expected outcome is not confirmed, it may result in a personal ‘disappointment’, and if the outcome fits no expectations, it will be a ‘surprise’. Our brain is hardwired with this heuristic capacity of learning the cause-effect relationship and to project its probability as the basis for much of our behavior, as well as cognitions. This experience-based expectation is a form of learning that helps the brain to bypass an exhaustive search in finding a satisfactory solution. Expectations may thus be considered an innate theory of causality; that is, a set of factors (causes) generating a given phenomenon (effects) influence the way we treat incoming information but also the way we retrieve the stored information. These expectancy templates may well represent one of the basic rules of how the brain processes information, affecting the way we perceive the world, direct our attention and deal with conflicting information. In fact, expectations have been shown to influence our judgments and social interactions, along with our volition to individually decide and commit to a particular course of action. However, people’s expectations may elicit the anticipation of their own automatic reactions to various situations and behaviors cues, and can explain that expecting to feel an increase in alertness after coffee consumption leads to experiencing the consequent physiologic and behavioral states. We call this behavior-response expectancy. This non-volitional form of expectation has been shown to influence cognitions such as memory, pain, visual awareness, implicit learning and attention, through the mediation of phenomena like placebo effects and hypnotic behaviors. Importantly,when talking about expectations, placebo and hypnosis, it is important to note that we are also talking about suggestion and its modulating capability. In other words, suggestion has the power to create response expectancies that activate automatic responses, which will, in turn, influence cognition and behavior so as to shape them congruently with the expected outcome. Accordingly, hypnotic inductions are a systematic manipulation of expectancy, similar to placebo, and therefore they both work in a similar way. Considering such assumptions, the major question we address in this PhD thesis is to know if these expectancy-based mechanisms are capable of modulating more high-level information processing such as cognitive conflict resolution, as is present in the well-known Stroop task. In fact, in a recent series of studies, reduction or elimination of Stroop congruency effects was obtained through suggestion and hypnotic induction. In this PhD thesis, it is asked whether a suggestion reinforced by placebos, operating through response-expectancy mechanisms, is able to induce a top-down cognitive modulation to overcome cognitive conflict in the Stroop task, similar to those results found using suggestion and hypnosis manipulation.

History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

The relation of hypnotizability and dissociation to everyday mentation: An experience sampling study
Publication year: 2016

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Research has found that individuals varying in hypnotizability and dissociation respond differently to questionnaires and procedures geared to affect their state of consciousness, but their stream of consciousness in everyday life has not been investigated. We evaluated the everyday mentation of students (N = 46) in a 2 (High vs. Low Hypnotizability) × 2 (High vs. Low Dissociative) design through experience sampling with personal digital assistants (PDAs). The PDAs prompted volunteers randomly 8 times per day during 5 days and included questions about attention, type of mental activity, and mood, among others, which resulted in 5 factors: focus/absorption, daydreaming, negative affect, control/awareness, and detachment. High control/awareness correlated with high focus/absorption, low negative affect, and low detachment. Detachment correlated also with daydreaming. As predicted, high dissociatives reported less control but more detachment and negative affect than low dissociatives. High hypnotizables (Highs) did not report more focus/absorption than low hypnotizables (Lows) but endorsed more daydreaming and negative affect. Highs reported more thoughts than Lows, and Lows reported more sensory impressions than Highs. Hypnotizability and dissociation also interacted: Low dissociatives/Lows reported less daydreaming than the others, and high dissociatives/Lows experienced less control than the other 3 groups combined. Participants reported less control/awareness during daydreaming, with high dissociatives/Highs showing a larger decrement than the others. Most mentations referred to thoughts or sensory impressions; the former were characterized by more negative affect than the latter. In general, individuals felt more dysphoric when their mentation was more detached or less focused or controlled than usual.

Dissociative subtypes in posttraumatic stress disorders and hypnosis: Neurocognitive parallels and clinical implications
Publication year: 2015
URL:
http://cdp.sagepub.com/content/24/6/452.abstract
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Converging evidence suggests that heterogeneity in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) arises from the presence of discrete subtypes of patients, one of which is characterized by elevated dissociative symptoms. A similar dissociative subtype has been observed among individuals displaying high hypnotic suggestibility. Here we highlight important parallels between these subtypes, drawing from research on a history of exposure to stressful life events and pathological symptomatology, cognitive functioning, hypnotic suggestibility, and functional neuroimaging and electrophysiology. Further clarification of these parallels can help elucidate the developmental paths and neurocognitive basis of heterogeneity in PTSD and high hypnotic suggestibility and refine the understanding and treatment of different subtypes of PTSD.

Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
A great body of data evidences that hypnotizability correlates with sustained and selected attentional abilities. The study of several auditory event-related measures and the continuous performance test (CPT) might be useful to assess the attentional resources in high (HH) and low (LH) hypnotizable subjects. Val158Met polymorphism of catechol-o-methyltransferase (COMT) gene impact dopamine (DA) signaling in prefrontal cortex and may participate in mechanisms of attention and hypnotizability.
The aim of the study was to investigate neurophysiological and genetic underpinnings of attentional abilities in subjects with high (HH) and low (LH) hypnotizability.
The study involved 19 HH (10 women and 9 men) and 17 LH (4 women and 13 men) subjects. Val158Met COMT polymorphism was detected using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The prepulse inhibition (PPI) of the acoustic startle response (ASR) was used to estimate involuntary attentive processes; the odd-ball task performance with concurrent estimation of P300 amplitude and latency were determined as voluntary attention measures. The Immediate Memory Task (IMT - the CPT adaptation) was used to test the sustained voluntary attention and its selectivity.
Met/Met homozygosity of COMT was associated with high hypnotizability. In the ASR model HHs displayed greater baseline response amplitude (excitability) and decreased PPI (i.e., decreased efficacy of sensorimotor gating). In the oddball task HH subjects displayed significantly less error responses to target stimuli and greater P300 amplitude at fronto-central area than LH ones. Hypnotizability x Gender interaction was significant for IMT performance: HH males displayed more liberal strategy (with higher number of commission errors) than LH men; HH women displayed higher number of correct responses than LH ones. Besides, after ASR testing the cortisol level in HH women was higher than in LH women, HH and LH men.
Our results evidenced the differences in the cognitive strategy and organization of attentional processes in HH and LH persons.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The study investigated association between hypnotizability, COMT polymorphism, P50 suppression ratio and prepulse inhibition of acoustic startle response (ASR). 21 high (HH) and 19 low (LH) hypnotizable subjects participated in the study. The frequency of Met/Met carriers of COMT polymorphysm was higher in HH than in LH group (33.3% versus 10.6%, p=.049). Increased ASR amplitude and latency, and decreased prepulse inhibition at 120 ms lead interval were found in HH compared to LH group. The effect of COMT genotype on prepulse inhibition was observed in LH group only. No between-group differences in P50 measures were found. The obtained results suppose the participation of dopamine system in mechanisms of hypnotizability, and different allocation of attentional resources in HH and LH subjects.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

New directions in hypnosis research: Strategies for advancing the cognitive and clinical neuroscience of hypnosis

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This article summarizes key advances in hypnosis research during the past two decades, including (i) clinical research supporting the efficacy of hypnosis for managing a number of clinical symptoms and conditions, (ii) research supporting the role of various divisions in the anterior cingulate and prefrontal cortices in hypnotic responding, and (iii) an emerging finding that high hypnotic suggestibility is associated with atypical brain connectivity profiles. Key recommendations for a research agenda for the next decade include the recommendations that (i) laboratory hypnosis researchers should strongly consider how they assess hypnotic suggestibility in their studies, (ii) inclusion of study participants who score in the middle range of hypnotic suggestibility, and (iii) use of expanding research designs that more clearly delineate the roles of inductions and specific suggestions. Finally, we make two specific suggestions for helping to move the field forward including (i) the use of data sharing and (ii) redirecting resources away from contrasting state and nonstate positions toward studying (a) the efficacy of hypnotic treatments for clinical conditions influenced by central nervous system processes and (b) the neurophysiological underpinnings of hypnotic phenomena. As we learn more about the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying hypnosis and suggestion, we will strengthen our knowledge of both basic brain functions and a host of different psychological functions.

Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).

Nuances and uncertainties regarding hypnotic inductions: Towards a theoretically informed praxis
Publication year: 2016

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Although most definitions of hypnosis consider inductions as the initial stage in a hypnosis protocol, knowledge of inductions remains poor and uninformed by recent developments in theory and research. It is frequently argued that inductions play a critical role in hypnotic responding or, by contrast, are largely interchangeable and unimportant. Drawing on the literature on suggestibility, spontaneous phenomenology, neurophysiology, and cognition, this article argues that the value of inductions, as well as the potential value of inductions, is more nuanced and uncertain. Certain components of standard inductions appear to be efficacious in enhancing suggestibility, whereas others do not have any clear benefits. The impact of inductions on suggestibility seems to vary across suggestions and modes of assessment with the sources of this variability being unknown. Considering these effects, and the broader impact of inductions on spontaneous conscious states and cognition, through the lens of heterogeneity in high hypnotic suggestibility and componential models of hypnotic suggestibility may offer novel research avenues in this area. The article concludes by arguing for the practical and theory-driven optimization of inductions.
