Three core hypnotic phenomena studied with both scientific precision and clinical savvy.

Three especially interesting and important studies on hypnosis have appeared in the scientific and medical literatures over the past few months. They are in the finest tradition of the field. Each study examines a phenomenon that is at once core to scientific hypnosis but also of keen interest to clinicians: conversion disorder, amnesia, and pain. It is testimony to the vigor of the field that these 3 phenomena endure as topics of discourse within and across disciplines. Further, the 3 studies make use of sophisticated designs and methodologies to render findings more (not less) relevant to clinical work. These 3 studies are wonderful examples of the field at its best: eschewing the partisan, embracing discourse, and in so doing mapping the domain of hypnosis with imagination and passion.
