Hypnosis really changes your mind. It measurably changes how the brain works, says a UK researcher.
A girlfriend of mine was a research assistant in a lab doing similar research at UC San Diego 5 or 6 years ago. They found that people's EEG patterns were different under hypnosis. I don't know if the results were ever published, but I guess it must have been pretty impressive, because she ended up deciding to be a hypnotist herself.
Great article! I'm persuing clinical psychology/child behaviors and this is going to be right up my alley!!
