EXERCISE VERSUS HYPNOSIS: ENHANCING WORKING MEMORY FOR PERFORMANCE – CLAUDE RIBAUX

Working memory is a kind of mental workspace used for many aspects of our everyday life, including reading, thinking, music making, sports. There is an upper limit to the amount of information we can hold and manipulate in the working memory at any given time. Conventional education and training emphasize mostly on practice and repetition to automate processes to optimize the working memory. We can demonstrate that conventional and active-alert hypnosis can impact the holding and manipulation capacity of the working memory to a higher degree than the conventional repetition and training methods.
