This investigation studied the effects of sensory deprivation on hypnotic susceptibility. Two groups, a control group of 8 subjects and an experimental group of 8 subjects, were utilized. The experimental and control group were tested for hypnotic susceptibility. Later the experimental group was placed under isolation and re-tested for hypnotic susceptibility. The control group was also re-tested. It was found that the sensory deprivation significantly augmented hypnotic susceptibility scores.
