Researches in Hypnosis


    IN a noteworthy article, the first to appear from the recently founded Institute of Experimental Psychology at Oxford, Dr. William Brown discusses “Hypnosis, Suggestibility and Progressive Relaxation” (Brit. J. Psych., 28, Part 4: April 1938). Originally delivered as a lecture to the British Psychological Society, it was again communicated, in an abridged form, to the Psychology Section of the British Association in 1937. The importance of its content justified this second communication at the Nottingham meeting, when many members of other sections had the opportunity of hearing and discussing it. Dr. Brown has been well advised to have the lecture printed.
