Check this study by Gruzelier.

http://www.hypnosis.edu/articles/brain-scans.asp

It suggest that two areas of the brain showing a change in activity when hypnotized are the anterior cingulate gyrus, that deals with plotting of future actions (amongst other things) and the medio-frontal cortex that governs our perception of how we will feel if we take a certain course of action.

Interesting :)

Just a quick question, but is the medio-frontal cortex active when we are in the REM state?

Like pain control with hypnosis it seems that the chain of command is broken before making it to awareness.

Take some time out to read Rossi. That is just a suggestion. I am just a hypnotist.

"James Horton at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville has even found physical brain differences: highly hypnotisable participants had a 30 per cent bigger rostrum, a part of the brain thought to help focus attention."

VERY interesting!
