Great article from Lynn, Laurence & Kirsch outlining a modern integrative model of hypnosis. (Sci-hub)

From the summary:

When it comes to investigating hypnosis, cognitively and neuro- physiologically, social-psychological variables are continuously at play modulating the hypnotic response. The extrinsic and intrinsic influences of these variables are part and parcel of what the experience of hypnosis is. It thus becomes quite important to com- pare what happens during hypnosis to what happens in contexts removed from hypnosis. As far as suggestibility is concerned, either high suggestibles process information differ- ently out of hypnosis and bring these differences to the hypnotic context (as the relation between imaginative suggestibility and hypnotic suggestibility suggests) or the demands of the hypnotic situation triggers in them cognitive processes that may or may not interact apart from this specific context.
