about this event

 The Hypnosis & Psychosomatic Medicine invites you to join their annual lecture to remember David Waxman, a founding member of the Section. This year we focus on the advances and challenges in the cognitive neuroscience of hypnosis. 

Devin Terhune will be presenting the 2016 David Waxman memorial lecture. Devin Terhune was chosen for his studies on individual differences in conscious awareness. He will be addressing conscious and its top-down regulation from the purview of cognitive neuroscience with a specific focus on time perception and hypnosis.

The memorial lecture will also feature Dr James Moore, Dr Quinton Deeley and Dr William McGeown and they will explore the cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychiatry of hypnosis and mindfulness.

At the end of the meeting, it is hoped that attendees will be able: 

  • To provide comprehensive, up-to-date knowledge regarding the brain mechanisms of hypnosis.
  • To describe current knowledge regarding the sense of agency and its disruption in healthy and clinical populations and in hypnosis.
  • To outline outstanding issues and challenges for the emerging neuroscience of hypnosis.

The meeting is most suitable for psychiatrists, psychologists, hypnotherapists and neuroscientists however all disciplines are welcome.

Delegates are also invited to register for the post meeting Christmas dinner (for which there is a £55 charge).

We look forward in welcoming you at the Hypnosis & Psychosomatic Medicine Section first meeting of the academic year.
