[Effect of "animal hypnosis" on the rhythmic defensive dominanta].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

A defensive dominanta (stationary excitation focus) in the sensorimotor cortex of rabbits was formed by rhythmical electrodermal paw stimulation with the frequency of 0.5 Hz. After cessation of the stimulation, the state of hidden excitation was tested with acoustic stimuli, in response to which nonrhythmic activity of leg muscles increased or the leg rhythmically startled with the frequency close to that of the electrodermal stimulation. After conducting a routine hypnotizing procedure, the incidence of the rhythmic responses to testing stimulation increased, while the incidence of nonrhythmic responses decreased.
