Abstract in Undetermined

To study the phenomenology of hypnotic virtuosos, the

author employed a 2 (hypnosis vs. control) × 3 (quiescent, pedaling a

stationary bike, having a motor pedal the bike) within-subjects design

with quantitative and qualitative measures. In a “neutral hypnosis”

of the 3 physical conditions showed that hypnotic experiences were

overall similar, although quiescence was more conducive to alterations

of body image and reports of depth. These results suggest that

hypnotic virtuosos have alterations of consciousness that can be better

conceptualized as distinct states rather than being on a continuum. (Less)
