Google Scholar is a neat tool. Google describes it as:
…a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations.
It didn’t occur to me until just now that Google Scholar could be an interesting source of information about hypnosis: http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=hypnosis&hl=en
These articles can be hard to understand unless you have a scientific or academic background, but fortunately most of them have abstracts that summarize the research in semi-plain English. It’s a good resource because it’s legitimate, peer-reviewed research and not just “stuff someone made up that sounds vaguely scientific”… you may have noticed that the latter is unfortunately common on the internet when it comes to subject of hypnosis.
PS. I don’t waste a lot of time trying to convince people that hypnosis is “real”. If, for some reason, a person refuses to believe that hypnosis exists in spite of the research done at places like Stanford University School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, etc. etc., then there’s little chance that I can convince them!
