By Willam Alexander Newman Dorland
An abnormal state into which some persons may be thrown, either by a voluntary act of their own, such as gazing continuously and with fixed attention on some small bright object held close to the eyes, or by the exercise of another person's will; characterized by suspension of the will and consequent obedience to the promptings of "suggestions" from without. Perfect insensibility to pain may be induced by hypnotism, and it has been used as an anesthetic. [Lat.]
By Smith Ely Jelliffe
