Hypnosis, non hypnotic suggestion and placebo effect: Looking for the link!

Units : Consciousness, Cognition & Computation Group | ULB484

Description :

The main goal of this study is to explore what are the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying hypnosis, suggestion and the
placebo effect. We hypothesize that these three phenomena described so far as being underpinned by different mechanisms are in fact
controlled by a set of common processes. We assume, moreover, that this process triggers the induction of states of consciousness
in which mental representations of high level (e.g., beliefs) are able to modulate the processing of information in an unconscious
and unintentional manner.
