MQ Safety Net: A multidimensional model and measure of the components of hypnotisability

    Project: Research

    Project Details


    Hypnosis can dramatically impact people's experiences and actions, yet variability in hypnotic responding is barely understood. To address this gap, this project will develop a new model of the components of hypnotisability. By applying methods from cognitive neuropsychology that have successfully decomposed other cognitive skills, this project will generate a new model and sensitive measure of hypnotisability and its personality, cognitive and neural correlates. This should provide significant benefits, such as advancing theories of hypnotic responding; allowing prediction of scientifically and clinically relevant future hypnotic performance; and enabling more precise and economical targeting of individuals to appropriate interventions.
