Dissociative subtypes in posttraumatic stress disorders and hypnosis: Neurocognitive parallels and clinical implications
Publication year: 2015

http://cdp.sagepub.com/content/24/6/452.abstract
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Converging evidence suggests that heterogeneity in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) arises from the presence of discrete subtypes of patients, one of which is characterized by elevated dissociative symptoms. A similar dissociative subtype has been observed among individuals displaying high hypnotic suggestibility. Here we highlight important parallels between these subtypes, drawing from research on a history of exposure to stressful life events and pathological symptomatology, cognitive functioning, hypnotic suggestibility, and functional neuroimaging and electrophysiology. Further clarification of these parallels can help elucidate the developmental paths and neurocognitive basis of heterogeneity in PTSD and high hypnotic suggestibility and refine the understanding and treatment of different subtypes of PTSD.

Hypnosis and top-down regulation of consciousness
Publication year: 2017

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0149763416306339
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Hypnosis is a unique form of top-down regulation in which verbal suggestions are capable of eliciting pronounced changes in a multitude of psychological phenomena. Hypnotic suggestion has been widely used both as a technique for studying basic science questions regarding human consciousness but also as a method for targeting a range of symptoms within a therapeutic context. Here we provide a synthesis of current knowledge regarding the characteristics and neurocognitive mechanisms of hypnosis. We review evidence from cognitive neuroscience, experimental psychopathology, and clinical psychology regarding the utility of hypnosis as an experimental method for modulating consciousness, as a model for studying healthy and pathological cognition, and as a therapeutic vehicle. We also highlight the relations between hypnosis and other psychological phenomena, including the broader domain of suggestion and suggestibility, and conclude by identifying the most salient challenges confronting the nascent cognitive neuroscience of hypnosis and outlining future directions for research on hypnosis and suggestion.

Publication year: 2017

https://academic.oup.com/nc/article/3/1/nix004/3605468/New-directions-in-hypnosis-research-strategies-for
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This article summarizes key advances in hypnosis research during the past two decades, including (i) clinical research supporting the efficacy of hypnosis for managing a number of clinical symptoms and conditions, (ii) research supporting the role of various divisions in the anterior cingulate and prefrontal cortices in hypnotic responding, and (iii) an emerging finding that high hypnotic suggestibility is associated with atypical brain connectivity profiles. Key recommendations for a research agenda for the next decade include the recommendations that (i) laboratory hypnosis researchers should strongly consider how they assess hypnotic suggestibility in their studies, (ii) inclusion of study participants who score in the middle range of hypnotic suggestibility, and (iii) use of expanding research designs that more clearly delineate the roles of inductions and specific suggestions. Finally, we make two specific suggestions for helping to move the field forward including (i) the use of data sharing and (ii) redirecting resources away from contrasting state and nonstate positions toward studying (a) the efficacy of hypnotic treatments for clinical conditions influenced by central nervous system processes and (b) the neurophysiological underpinnings of hypnotic phenomena. As we learn more about the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying hypnosis and suggestion, we will strengthen our knowledge of both basic brain functions and a host of different psychological functions.

Nuances and uncertainties regarding hypnotic inductions: Towards a theoretically informed praxis
Publication year: 2016

http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/00029157.2016.1201454
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Although most definitions of hypnosis consider inductions as the initial stage in a hypnosis protocol, knowledge of inductions remains poor and uninformed by recent developments in theory and research. It is frequently argued that inductions play a critical role in hypnotic responding or, by contrast, are largely interchangeable and unimportant. Drawing on the literature on suggestibility, spontaneous phenomenology, neurophysiology, and cognition, this article argues that the value of inductions, as well as the potential value of inductions, is more nuanced and uncertain. Certain components of standard inductions appear to be efficacious in enhancing suggestibility, whereas others do not have any clear benefits. The impact of inductions on suggestibility seems to vary across suggestions and modes of assessment with the sources of this variability being unknown. Considering these effects, and the broader impact of inductions on spontaneous conscious states and cognition, through the lens of heterogeneity in high hypnotic suggestibility and componential models of hypnotic suggestibility may offer novel research avenues in this area. The article concludes by arguing for the practical and theory-driven optimization of inductions.

Variation in the sense of agency during response to hypnotic suggestions: Insights from latent profile analysis
Publication year: 2016

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The primary phenomenological feature of a response to hypnotic suggestion is the perception that a person is not the author of their actions and experiences. This distortion in volition during hypnotic responding, known as the classic suggestion effect, has the potential to illuminate the neurocognitive mechanisms underlying hypnosis and inform broader models of agency. Here, we sought to clarify interindividual differences in the patterns of agency that participants experience during hypnosis. We applied latent profile analysis, a finite mixture modeling method for partitioning participants into homogeneous classes, to participants’ responses to a standardized behavioral measure of hypnotic suggestibility and an experiential measure of sense of agency during hypnotic responding. The best fitting model suggested that there were 4 discrete response patterns: a low suggestible class, 2 medium suggestible classes, and 1 highly suggestible class. The 2 medium suggestible classes displayed nearly equivalent patterns of behavioral hypnotic responding but diverged in their experience of agency during hypnotic responding: 1 class experienced greater involuntariness during responding, whereas the other experienced greater effortlessness during responding. These results reinforce previous research highlighting differential patterns of hypnotic responding and complement work suggesting that there may be 2 or more phenomenologically distinct modes of hypnotic responding. They also have a number of implications for the measurement of hypnotic responding and for the use of low and medium suggestible individuals in experimental hypnosis research designs.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The claustrum has been proposed as a possible neural candidate for the coordination of conscious experience due to its extensive ‘connectome’. Herein we propose that the claustrum contributes to consciousness by supporting the temporal integration of cortical oscillations in response to multisensory input. A close link between conscious awareness and interval timing is suggested by models of consciousness and conjunctive changes in meta-awareness and timing in multiple contexts and conditions. Using the striatal beat-frequency model of interval timing as a framework, we propose that the claustrum integrates varying frequencies of neural oscillations in different sensory cortices into a coherent pattern that binds different and overlapping temporal percepts into a unitary conscious representation. The proposed coordination of the striatum and claustrum allows for time-based dimensions of multisensory integration and decision-making to be incorporated into consciousness.

Nuances and uncertainties regarding hypnotic inductions: Towards a theoretically informed praxis
Publication year: 2018
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Although most definitions of hypnosis consider inductions as the initial stage in a hypnosis protocol, our knowledge of inductions remains poor and uninformed by recent developments in theory and research. It is frequently argued that inductions play a critical role in hypnotic responding or, by contrast, are largely interchangeable and unimportant. Drawing on the literature on suggestibility, spontaneous phenomenology, neurophysiology, and cognition, we argue that the value of inductions, as well as the potential value of inductions, is more nuanced and uncertain. Certain components of standard inductions appear to be efficacious in enhancing suggestibility, whereas others do not have any clear benefits. The impact of inductions on suggestibility seems to vary across suggestions and modes of assessment with the sources of this variability being unknown. Considering these effects, and the broader impact of inductions on spontaneous conscious states and cognition, through the lens of heterogeneity in high hypnotic suggestibility and componential models of hypnotic suggestibility may offer novel research avenues in this area. We conclude by arguing for the practical and theory-driven optimization of inductions.

Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Despite recent advances in neuroimaging research on hypnosis, the neurophysiological bases of individual differences in hypnotic suggestibility remain poorly understood. In particular, relatively little is known about how variability of neurochemicals in sensory-motor regions and areas in dopaminergic pathways contribute to variability in hypnotic responding. Similarly, relatively little research has sought to dissociate behavioural response to suggestions from the distortions in agency that comprise the primary phenomenological feature of response to suggestion. To address these gaps, we undertook three studies aiming to advance current understanding in this domain by investigating the neurochemical and brain structural correlates of hypnotic suggestibility and distortions in the sense of agency during hypnotic responding. Study 1 showed that hypnotic suggestibility is negatively associated with motor cortex GABA concentrations even after controlling for multiple potential confounding variables. Study 2, by contrast, did not identify any robust correlates of hypnotic suggestibility in multiple regions of interest including pre-SMA, putamen, and cerebllum. Finally, Study 3 found that involuntariness during response to suggestion, but not hypnotic suggestibility, was associated with grey matter volume in a broad network involving thalamus, brain stem, and cerebellum. Together, these studies implicate motor processing in hypnotic responding and brain regions involved in the transmission of motor and sensory information to cortex and the sense of agency in the phenomenology of hypnotic responding. This research expands current knowledge regarding the neural basis of hypnotic suggestibility and suggests new avenues for research.
