Final report - Enhancing hypnotic suggestibility with transcranial direct current stimulation

Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
The goal of this project was to investigate the enhancement of hypnotic suggestibility. Studies 1 and 2 applied transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to left prefrontal cortex in a double-blind, sham-controlled design, in an attempt to increase responsiveness to a hypnotic suggestion for enhanced selective and sustained attention, respectively. These studies produced mixed results although there was clear evidence that suggestion could be used to improve sustained attention. Study 3 investigated the hypnotic response patterns of medium and highly suggestible individuals and identified three distinct patterns. Study 4 was a theoretical critique of contemporary measures of hypnotic responding and provides recommendations for the development of the next generation of assessment instruments. Study 5 found that hypnotic suggestibility is negatively associated with metacognition. This project has a number of implications for the enhancement of hypnotic suggestibility. First, tDCS applied to left prefrontal cortex does not appear to reliably enhance hypnotic suggestibility. Second, high hypnotic suggestibility is characterized by diverse response patterns and the clarification of these patterns will benefit future attempts to enhance suggestibility. Third, contemporary measures of hypnotic responding suffer from significant methodological limitations and thus studies modifying suggestibility using these scales should be interpreted with scepticism. Finally, hypnotic suggestibility is associated with impaired metacognition and thus future research on the modification of suggestibility may benefit from specifically targeting this function.

Discrete response patterns in the upper range of hypnotic suggestibility: A latent profile analysis
Publication year: 2015

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053810015000252
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT
High hypnotic suggestibility is a heterogeneous condition and there is accumulating evidence that highly suggestible individuals may be comprised of discrete subtypes with dissimilar cognitive and phenomenological profiles. This study applied latent profile analysis to response patterns on a diverse battery of difficult hypnotic suggestions in a sample of individuals in the upper range of hypnotic suggestibility. Comparisons among models indicated that a four-class model was optimal. One class was comprised of very highly suggestible (virtuoso) participants, two classes included highly suggestible participants who were alternately more responsive to inhibitory cognitive suggestions or posthypnotic amnesia suggestions, and the fourth class consisted primarily of medium suggestible participants. These results indicate that there are discrete response profiles in high hypnotic suggestibility. They further provide a number of insights regarding the optimization of hypnotic suggestibility measurement and have implications for the instrumental use of hypnosis for the modeling of different psychological conditions.

Response time fluctuations in the sustained attention to response task predict performance accuracy and meta-awareness of attentional states
Publication year: 2020

http://research.gold.ac.uk/28557/1/Polychroni_PCASART.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Previous research suggests that response time (RT) patterns in the Sustained Attention to Response Task (SART) differentially predict different features of mind wandering but it is unknown how they relate to meta-awareness of attentional states. We applied principal component analysis to blocks of non-target (go) trials prior to target (no-go) trials and attentional state and meta-awareness probes in the SART and identified three distinct patterns that replicated those observed in previous research. A stable response rate was associated with superior target performance, whereas RT acceleration prior to targets was associated
with poorer target performance. Self-reported attentional state was not significantly predicted by any of the pattern components. By contrast, meta-awareness was independently associated with two distinct RT fluctuation patterns with evidence that each pattern was specifically related to either meta-awareness of off-task or on-task states. These results suggest that mind wandering and meta-awareness of attentional states have distinct and overlapping imprints on RT patterns in the SART. We conclude by highlighting implications of these results for introspective methods and the measurement of mind wandering.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The most well-established finding gleaned from decades of experimental hypnosis research is that individuals display marked variability in responsiveness to hypnotic suggestions. Insofar as this variability impacts both treatment outcome in therapeutic applications of hypnosis as well as responsiveness to suggestions in experimental contexts, it is imperative that clinicians and researchers use robust measures of hypnotic suggestibility. The current paper critically evaluates contemporary measures of hypnotic suggestibility. After reviewing the most widely used measures, we identify multiple properties of these instruments that result in the loss of valuable information, including binary scoring and single-trial sampling, and hinder their utility, such as the inclusion of suboptimal suggestion content. The scales are not well-suited for contemporary research questions and have outlived their usefulness. We conclude by outlining ways in which the measurement of hypnotic suggestibility can be advanced.

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.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A disruption in the sense of agency is the primary phenomenological feature of response to hypnotic suggestions but its cognitive basis remains elusive. Here we tested the proposal that distorted volition during response to suggestions arises from poor metacognition pertaining to the sources of one's control. Highly suggestible and control participants completed a motor task in which performance was reduced through surreptitious manipulations of cursor lag and stimuli speed. Highly suggestible participants did not differ from controls in performance or metacognition of performance, but their sense of agency was less sensitive to cursor lag manipulations, suggesting reduced awareness that their control was being manipulated. These results indicate that highly suggestible individuals have aberrant metacognition of agency and may be a valuable population for studying distortions in the sense of agency.
