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.

Nella sperimentazione qui presentata sono stati indagati gli effetti dell’induzione ipnotica sulla percezione visiva. Nello specifico tre diversi esperimenti hanno testato l’effetto della trance ipnotica sulla percezione della dinamica di luminosità, sulla visione stereoscopica e sulla scelta del set base dei colori del test di Lüscher. I test hanno evidenziato un ampliamento significativo della dinamica percepita ed un cambiamento importante nella scelta dei colori, mentre non vi sono state modifiche significative nella percezione stereoscopica.
