Experimental neuroses by control of emotions. Experiment designed by Johan Barendregt, conducted by Frits van Dam, and filmed by F.P. Sepp in 1969 at University of Amsterdam, showing how emotions can be controlled via hypnosis. The following things are shown. 1. Various emotions Ek can be induced by a post-hypnotic signal Sk via hypnotic induction. 2. If afterwards the signal S is preceded by a conditioned stimulus CS, the corresponding emotion E appears after the CS. When the posthypnotic order is withdrawn, S doesn’t invoke any longer the emotion E. But the effect of the CS remains. 3. By providing S1 and S2 simultaneously corresponding to conflicting emotions E1, E2, then an experimental neurosis results. 4. Sexual libido can be controlled as well. If this happens to men they show this visibly, women not. However, physiological parameters in both men and women react similarly.
Limitation. The number of subjects is low, so that this experiment is to be considered as a very interesting case study.
