The Science of Hypnosis

06 March 2005
Presented by Chris Smith, Helen Scales.

In this entrancing show Peter Naish and Tannis Laidlaw discuss the science of hypnotism, what is happening in the brain during hypnosis, and how hypnosis can help people give up smoking, improve well-being, and conquer fears. They also describe when hypnotism can be unreliable, including why using hypnosis to discover your former life or recall the scene of a crime may unearth false memories. Philippa Law adds to our Einstein series by finding out how a calculator works.
