Hypnosis: a relatively current re-assessment by science

My brilliant pal, here, Martin, wrote in a comment (below in another posting) that he disagreed with my assessment that Hypnosis/Hypnotism has been reassessed by science and deemed to be valid and useful.

I don't like countering Martin (and a few others of you) when you think I'm wrong.

But, indeed, Neuroscience has come, lately, to see the validity of hypnosis for a number of uses about the mind, behavior, et cetera.

While a few so-called UFO researchers have sullied the methodology, mostly by inadvertently or, sometimes, purposefully inserting their biases into the subject's responses while "out," the practice can be effectively utilized to regain access to information stored in the memory (unconscious) of the person hypnotized.

I have dozens of supporting papers (and links) if anyone is interested. (Martin?)



  • RR:

    I appreciate the compliment. It would be nice to read those sources. Not that long ago I was searching for research on the reliability of hypnosis for memory retrieval. I was interested in seeing if skeptics had overstated their case on hypnotically gathered evidence of "alien abductions"--since skeptics so often misrepresent the science they claim to rely on. I didn't find anything going against the skeptics' position. But maybe my search efforts weren't good enough.
