The Power of mind: Blocking visual perception by hypnosis

by Dr. Barbara Schmidt Biological and Clinical Psychology University of Jena Jena, Germany Abstract In our recently published study (www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-05195-2), we show that a blocking suggestion given under hypnosis has significant impact on visual perception and underlying brain responses measured via EEG.
