An investigation of selective deafness produced by direct suggestion under hypnosisBritish Medical Journal (1961)
Many aspects of psychogenic deafness as encountered clinically in association with psychopathology have already been demonstrated in deafness produced in normal persons by direct suggestion under hypnosis (Erickson, 1938; Pattie, 1950). Such work to date has dealt only with deafness extending over the whole aural spectrum (total deafness). We have reported, in a preliminary communication, on the production of frequency selective deafness in this way (Black and Wigan, 1960), and we have now carried out further interpretation of our data and have performed a number of additional experiments.
