Hypnosis and the Science Lab

Many years ago in an advertising campaign for an alcoholic beverage, the notion was that the drink guides the drinker to be able to miraculous things, with the tagline that “only Heineken can do this – because Heineken reaches parts of the brain that other lagers cannot reach.”

As this fascinating article from Vincent Bell explores, hypnosis reaches the parts that brain scans and neurosurgery cannot reach!
