Abstract This experiment aimed to create a laboratory analogue of déjà vu. During hypnosis, 1 group of high hypnotizables completed a puzzle game and then received a posthypnotic amnesia suggestion to forget the game (PHA condition). Another group of highs were not given the game but received a posthypnotic familiarity suggestion that it would feel familiar (PHF condition). After hypnosis, all participants were given the game and described their reactions to it. Whereas 83% of participants in… Expand
Hypnosis and learning: Pilot study on a group of students
TLDR
It is believed that hypnosis has the capacity to induce a nervous plasticity that supports learning of visual-spatial memory. Expand
Hypnotic Illusions and Clinical Delusions: A Hypnotic Paradigm for Investigating Delusions of Misidentification
  • Rochelle Cox, A. Barnier
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The International journal of clinical and experimental hypnosis
  • 2009
TLDR
The authors created a hypnotic analogue of delusions of misidentification and explored their impact on autobiographical memory and highlighted the instrumental value of hypnosis to the investigation and understanding of delusions and autobiographical remembering. Expand
Developing hypnotic analogues of clinical delusions: Mirrored-self misidentification
TLDR
The hypnotic suggestion created a credible, compelling delusion with features strikingly similar to clinical cases of mirrored-self misidentification, suggesting that Factor 2 within Langdon and Coltheart's two-factor framework may involve a lowering of the criteria used to accept or reject delusional hypotheses. Expand
“That's not my arm”: A hypnotic analogue of somatoparaphrenia
TLDR
Although many hypnotic subjects experienced temporary paralysis, only a minority claimed their arm did not belong to them, and the Fully Formed suggestion was more successful in recreating features of somatoparaphrenia than the Factor 1 + Factor 2 suggestion. Expand
fMRI evidence supporting the role of memory conflict in the déjà vu experience
TLDR
The increased likelihood of déjà vu reports to DRM critical lures correctly identified as "new", and the activation of neural substrates supporting the experience of cognitive conflict during déjès vu, suggest that the resolution of memory conflict may play an integral role in déjé vu. Expand
A Hypnotic Analogue of Clinical Confabulation
  • Rochelle Cox, A. Barnier
  • Psychology, Medicine

Abstract Confabulation—fabricated or distorted memories about oneself—occurs in many disorders, but there is no reliable technique for investigating it in the laboratory. The authors used hypnosis toExpand
Modeling Erotomania Delusion in the Laboratory With Hypnosis
TLDR
Hypnotic erotomania suggestions successfully recreated the features of the clinical delusion for many high hypnotizable subjects and highlight the value of using hypnosis to model clinical delusions. Expand
Hypnotic suggestion and cognitive neuroscience
TLDR
With functional imaging, this type of experimental neuropsychopathology offers a productive means of investigating brain activity involved in many symptom-based disorders and their related phenomenology. Expand
Overcoming familiarity illusions in a single case with persistent déjà vu
TLDR
This single-case study reports the case of MN, a 25-year-old woman, who suffered a cerebral haemorrhage in the right thalamo-callosal region and experienced recurrent déjà vu episodes, and develops the first neuropsychological intervention dedicated to déjón, to train MN to detect elements that could produce an inappropriate feeling of familiarity and to promote metacognitive awareness about déjaa vu. Expand
Novel insights into false recollection: A model of déjà vécu
TLDR
It is suggested that a region downstream of the hippocampus signals “recollection” by detecting the timing of firing in hippocampal output neurons relative to the theta oscillation, and thatruptions to this “temporal coding” mechanism result in false signals of recollection which may occur without actual retrieval and which, ironically, may arise particularly during situations of contextual novelty.

TLDR
The effects of posthypnotic amnesia were consistent with the major features of functional amnesia: PHA disrupted retrieval of autobiographical information, produced a dissociation between implicit and explicit memory, and was reversible. Expand

TLDR
An editorial introduction to a special issue on hypnosis and psychopathology discusses several links between the two fields and suggests that hypnotic anesthesia and analgesia, amnesia, and posthypnotic suggestion may serve as laboratory models of dissociative phenomena seen in the clinic. Expand
