ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study that explores whether hypnosis can be used to induce nausea and is this associated with delayed gastric emptying. Most laboratory based research into the effect of nausea on gastric functioning has been conducted using nausea evoking stimuli, such as circular vection. Hypnosis can be used to successfully induce the sensation of nausea and is associated with a delay in gastric emptying. Hypnosis might provide an alternative way to study the effects of nausea in a laboratory based selling.
