Hypnosis and recognition of a face
Language: 
English
Abstract: 

13 hypnotically susceptible subjects were given a hypnotic induction procedure with suggestions to facilitate recognition of a target face shown 7 days earlier. Their accuracy was compared with that of 12 subjects in an untreated control condition. There was no support for the hypothesis that hypnosis improves facial recognition; indeed, there was evidence that hypnosis may serve to increase the number of false positive identifications.
