About This Topic
As an area of scientifìc inquiry and clinical practice, hypnosis dates back over 240 years, remaining a fascinating and elusive concept for science for a long time. However, the explosive advances in neuroscience in the last few decades have provided a ‘bridge of understanding’ between neural mechanisms and clinical practice. Nowadays, hypnosis is increasingly being recognized by the international scientific community not only as an effective technique for clinical applications (e.g., pain, a wide variety of psychological and psychosomatic disorders) but also as a valid and flexible physiological tool to explore the central and peripheral nervous system. This seems to be a real Copernican revolution in the field.
The future of hypnosis depends greatly on the capacity of hypnosis researchers to integrate hypnosis research into knowledge bases of research in broader areas. This goal can be achieved by capitalizing the potential of hypnosis to extend major socio-cognitive psychology, the neural basis of consciousness, and applications in medicine, psychology and psychiatry.
