Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The goal of this project was to examine whether there are discrete subtypes of highly suggestible individuals and to explore the relevance of these subtypes for the occurrence and expression of anomalous perceptual experiences. We conducted a series of studies to test predictions derived from typological models that assert that highly suggestible individuals are comprised of dissociative and imagery/fantasy subtypes who experience hypnosis and hypnotic suggestions through different mechanisms. These subtypes are also expected to report differential patterns of anomalous perceptual experiences.
Our studies provide clear, but qualified, support for the typological models and illustrate the importance of dissociation and hypnotic suggestibility for our understanding of anomalous experiences. Three studies yielded complementary evidence for a dissociative highly suggestible subtype that experienced greater spontaneous alterations in awareness and poorer cognitive control during hypnosis, and greater involuntariness during hypnotic responding and a second subtype that exhibited milder alterations in consciousness and marginally superior cognitive control during hypnosis, and strong baseline imagery. Our fourth study found that the two subtypes differed from low suggestible individuals, but not one another, in self-reported state dissociation and functional connectivity, as measured by EEG, during hypnosis. In a final study, we found that the dissociative subtype reported a greater amount and diversity of anomalous perceptual experiences. The results cumulatively provide support for proposals that there are distinct subtypes of highly suggestible individuals but also point to the importance of similarities in this population.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION:
Inconsistencies in the relationship between dissociation and hypnosis may result from heterogeneity among highly suggestible individuals, in particular the existence of distinct highly suggestible subtypes that are of relevance to models of psychopathology and the consequences of trauma. This study contrasted highly suggestible subtypes high or low in dissociation on measures of hypnotic responding, cognitive functioning, and psychopathology.
METHODS:
Twenty-one low suggestible (LS), 19 low dissociative highly suggestible (LDHS), and 11 high dissociative highly suggestible (HDHS) participants were administered hypnotic suggestibility scales and completed measures of free recall, working memory capacity, imagery, fantasy-proneness, psychopathology, and exposure to stressful life events.
RESULTS:
HDHS participants were more responsive to positive and negative hallucination suggestions and experienced greater involuntariness during hypnotic responding. They also exhibited impaired working memory capacity, elevated pathological fantasy and dissociative symptomatology, and a greater incidence of exposure to stressful life events. In contrast, LDHS participants displayed superior object visual imagery.
CONCLUSIONS:
These results provide further evidence for two highly suggestible subtypes: a dissociative subtype characterised by deficits in executive functioning and a predisposition to psychopathology, and a subtype that exhibits superior imagery and no observable deficits in functioning.

Differential frontal-parietal phase synchrony during hypnosis as a function of hypnotic suggestibility

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Spontaneous dissociative alterations in awareness and perception among highly suggestible individuals following a hypnotic induction may result from disruptions in the functional coordination of the frontal-parietal network. We recorded EEG and self-reported state dissociation in control and hypnosis conditions in two sessions with low and highly suggestible participants. Highly suggestible participants reliably experienced greater state dissociation and exhibited lower frontal-parietal phase synchrony in the alpha2 frequency band during hypnosis than low suggestible participants. These findings suggest that highly suggestible individuals exhibit a disruption of the frontal-parietal network that is only observable following a hypnotic induction.

Publication year: 2011

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053810010002503
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This study tested the prediction that dissociative tendencies modulate the impact of a hypnotic induction on cognitive control in different subtypes of highly suggestible individuals. Low suggestible (LS), low dissociative highly suggestible (LDHS), and high dissociative highly suggestible (HDHS) participants completed the Stroop color-naming task in control and hypnosis conditions. The magnitude of conflict adaptation (faster response times on incongruent trials preceded by an incongruent trial than those preceded by a congruent trial) was used as a measure of cognitive control. LS and LDHS participants displayed marginally superior up-regulation of cognitive control following a hypnotic induction, whereas HDHS participants' performance declined. These findings indicate that dissociative tendencies modulate the influence of a hypnotic induction on cognitive control in high hypnotic suggestibility and suggest that HS individuals are comprised of distinct subtypes with dissimilar cognitive profiles.

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.

Disruption of synaesthesia by posthypnotic suggestion: An ERP study
Publication year: 2010

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S002839321000299X
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This study examined whether the behavioral and electrophysiological correlates of synaesthetic response conflict could be disrupted by posthypnotic suggestion. We recorded event-related brain potentials while a highly suggestible face-color synaesthete and matched controls viewed congruently and incongruently colored faces in a color-naming task. The synaesthete, but not the controls, displayed slower response times, and greater P1 and sustained N400 ERP components over frontal-midline electrodes for incongruent than congruent faces. The behavioral and N400 markers of response conflict, but not the P1, were abolished following a posthypnotic suggestion for the termination of the participant's synaesthesia and reinstated following the cancellation of the suggestion. These findings demonstrate that the conscious experience of synaesthesia can be temporarily abolished by cognitive control.

Differential patterns of spontaneous experiential response to a hypnotic induction: A latent profile analysis
Publication year: 2010
URL:
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053810010000607
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A hypnotic induction produces different patterns of spontaneous experiences across individuals. The magnitude and characteristics of these responses covary moderately with hypnotic suggestibility, but also differ within levels of hypnotic suggestibility. This study sought to identify discrete phenomenological profiles in response to a hypnotic induction and assess whether experiential variability among highly suggestible individuals matches the phenomenological profiles predicted by dissociative typological models of high hypnotic suggestibility. Phenomenological state scores indexed in reference to a resting epoch during hypnosis were submitted to a latent profile analysis. The profiles in the derived four-class solution differed in multiple experiential dimensions and hypnotic suggestibility. Highly suggestible individuals were distributed across two classes that exhibited response patterns suggesting an inward attention subtype and a dissociative subtype. These results provide support for dissociative typological models of high hypnotic suggestibility and indicate that highly suggestible individuals do not display a uniform response to a hypnotic induction.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The scant literature on the sequelae of hypnotizability-measurement instruments indicates that different scales produce different reactions. The Waterloo-Stanford Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form C (WSGC) was developed as a group version of the Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scale, Form C (SHSS:C). Parallel to the literature showing that the SHSS:C can produce more negative aftereffects than the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form A, we report preliminary descriptive statistics documenting the infrequent occurrence of negative reactions to the WSGC age-regression item. We recommend that experimenters take this matter into consideration and, at the very least, ensure the presence of a clinician with hypnotic experience during the administration of the WSGC.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Although forgetting is often regarded as a deficit that we need to control to optimize cognitive functioning, it can have beneficial effects in a number of contexts. We examined whether disrupting memory for previous numerical responses would attenuate repetition avoidance (the tendency to avoid repeating the same number) during random number generation and thereby improve the randomness of responses. Low suggestible and low dissociative and high dissociative highly suggestible individuals completed a random number generation task in a control condition, following a posthypnotic amnesia suggestion to forget previous numerical responses, and in a second control condition following the cancellation of the suggestion. High dissociative highly suggestible participants displayed a selective increase in repetitions during posthypnotic amnesia, with equivalent repetition frequency to a random system, whereas the other two groups exhibited repetition avoidance across conditions. Our results demonstrate that temporarily disrupting memory for previous numerical responses improves random number generation.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This study tested the prediction that dissociative highly suggestible respondents exhibit disruptions in executive attention during hypnosis. These respondents but not their non-dissociative counterparts, nor low suggestible controls, displayed impaired up-regulation of cognitive control in post-conflict trials in a Stroop color-naming task during hypnosis, but not in the control condition.

Differential patterns of spontaneous phenomenological response to a hypnotic induction: A latent profile analysis
Publication year: 2009

http://www.theassc.org/files/assc/assc13_abstracts_screen.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Previous research indicates that individuals exhibit heterogeneous patterns of spontaneous experiences following a hypnotic induction. Such variability is explained in part by hypnotic suggestibility but is also present among highly suggestible individuals. Typological models have proposed that highly suggestible individuals are comprised of dissimilar types of respondents who differ in multiple dimensions of hypnotic responding. This study sought to discern phenomenological classes from the spontaneous experiential responses to a hypnotic induction and to assess whether experiential variability among highly suggestible individuals conforms to a typological pattern. Six hundred and forty individuals experienced the Waterloo-Stanford Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form C ( wsgc; Bowers, 1998 ), which consists of a hypnotic induction followed by a series of suggestions. a two-minute resting epoch was embedded within the wsgc. Participants retrospectively completed the Phenomenology of Consciousness
Inventory ( pci; Pekala, 1991 ) in reference to their experiences during the resting epoch. Five phenomenological state factors derived from the pci ( dissociated control, positive affect, negative affect, visual imagery, and attention to internal processes) were submitted to a latent profile analysis. The fit indices and likelihood ratio tests of multiple models were contrasted and participants were assigned to a class on the basis of the posterior probabilities of the best fitting model. A four-class model exhibited the strongest fit to the data. The first and second classes were comprised of individuals from all levels of hypnotic suggestibility, whereas the third and fourth classes were comprised of only low and medium suggestible individuals. Highly suggestible individuals were divided evenly between the first and second classes, which differed in negative affect, dissociative experiences, and attentional absorption. These results indicate that highly suggestible individuals do not exhibit a homogeneous experiential response pattern to a hypnotic induction and provide support for typological models of high hypnotic suggestibility.

http://www.bial.com/simposio/Livro_de_Actas_8_Simposio.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Highly suggestible individuals exhibit considerable heterogeneity. A number of models have proposed that there is a dissociative highly suggestible subtype. This project tested predictions of these models and examined whether different highly suggestible subtypes display different patterns of anomalous perceptual experiences.
The first study investigated whether there are discrete subtypes of highly suggestible participants with a latent profile analysis of spontaneous phenomenological responses during hypnosis. The analysis suggested two subtypes, an inward-attention and a dissociative subtype. The former experienced greater alterations in awareness and volition, whereas the latter experienced greater attention and more vivid imagery.
The second study examined whether the two subtypes differ in hypnotic responding and cognitive functioning. High dissociative highly suggestible (HDHS) participants were more responsive to positive and negative hallucination suggestions and experienced greater involuntariness during hypnotic responding than low dissociative highly suggestible (LDHS) participants. HDHS participants exhibited impaired working memory capacity, whereas LDHS participants displayed superior object visual imagery. The two subtypes didn’t differ in general psychopathology, but HDHS participants exhibited greater levels of pathological fantasizing.
The third study tested the prediction that a hypnotic induction would differentially impact executive attention in the different HS subtypes types. HDHS participants exhibited impaired cognitive control during hypnosis relative to the control condition, whereas low suggestible (LS) and LDHS participants displayed marginally superior cognitive control during hypnosis.
The fourth study examined the neural basis for differential levels of state dissociation among LDHS and HDHS participants. HDHS participants exhibited marginally greater state dissociation during hypnosis than the other two groups. We also evaluated the relationship between this finding and measures of electrocortical synchronization.
The fifth study examined whether the typological models can yield insights into the expression and prevalence of anomalous perceptual experiences. The HDHS participants were found to consistently report a greater incidence of anomalous experiences.
These studies indicate that there are different subtypes of highly suggestible individuals who exhibit dissimilar cognitive and phenomenological profiles.

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:
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.

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.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION
Predictive coding models propose that high hypnotic suggestibility confers a predisposition to hallucinate due to an elevated propensity to weight perceptual beliefs (priors) over sensory evidence. Multiple lines of research corroborate this prediction and demonstrate a link between hypnotic suggestibility and proneness to anomalous perceptual states. However, such effects might be moderated by dissociative tendencies, which seem to account for heterogeneity in high hypnotic suggestibility. We tested the prediction that the prevalence of anomalous experiences would be greater among highly suggestible individuals who are also highly dissociative.
METHODS
We compared high and low dissociative highly suggestible participants and low suggestible controls on multiple psychometric measures of anomalous experiences.
RESULTS
High dissociative highly suggestible participants reliably reported greater anomalous experiences than low dissociative highly suggestible participants and low suggestible controls, who did not significantly differ from each other.
CONCLUSIONS
These results suggest a greater predisposition to experience anomalous perceptual states among high dissociative highly suggestible individuals.
