  • T N a previous communication (3), the induction •*• of sleep, accompanied by typical brain wave patterns, during hypnosis was reported and described. The present communication concerns the brain wave changes associated with hypnotic modifications of behavior less profound than alternation of sleep and waking. The significance of these changes will be discussed in terms of the function of the brain in organizing patterns of organism-environment relationships.
