8. Why hypnotism works—sometimes
Just because you can't remember an event, name, or face doesn't mean it's not still lurking in your brain, able to be retrieved through hypnotism. That's because our brains appear to have a threshold of what's considered fully formed memory, and hypnosis lowers that threshold (though how it does this is still unknown). Fragments and half-processed memories that your brain's retrieval system may not recognize when you're in a conscious state can be recognized under hypnosis as legitimate experiences. "It gets rid of your internal monitoring," says Schooler. However, with your threshold temporarily lowered, your mental guard is down: You're prone to suggestion—e.g., "cluck like a chicken"—and more likely to remember statements from the hypnotist as your own memories.
