In the presented experiment we have investigated the effects of hypnosis on the visual perception. In particular we have devised three tests to check the perception of luminance dynamic range, stereo acuity and color preference on the basic color set of Lüscher test. Results have proven no effect on stereo acuity but significant effects on the perception of luminance dynamic range and color preference. The perception of luminance dynamic range increase under hypnosis and the color preferences are largely modified.
