Abstract: First ed. of Pavlov’s physiology of the dog during hypnosis. Later in his career, the Nobel prize-winning Russian physiologist and psychologist, Ivan P. Pavlov, developed an influential theory of hypnosis based upon his experiments in animal conditioning. Pavlov’s collection of lectures entitled Conditioned Reflexes (1927) include summaries of his two conclusions in relation to hypnosis: 1. The state of relaxation induced in human hypnosis resembles the physiological phenomenon of “animal hypnosis” and results from “cortical inhibition”, or the ‘intense fatigue’ or inhibition of specific cells in the cerebral cortex, and 2. Hypnotic suggestions function by using words as stimuli to evoke conditioned responses which are intensified by individual “rapport zones”, or individualized residual centers of attention and excitation which respond to the words used in conditioning.
