TranceScience pursue scientific research, while exploring the potential applications of trance in a variety of fields
TranceScience is pursuing a variety of research projects on brain structure and activity in trance states with dissociation between conscious and unconscious processes exhibiting cognitive expansion.
TranceScience is exploring a variety of applications of self-induced cognitive trance, including:
First global study on self-induced trance with clinical application.
Teams from the “CHU de Liège” / GIGA-Consciousness, the University of Liège and the TranceScience Research Institute (Paris) are pooling their expertise to launch an innovative project on the effects of self-induced cognitive trance practiced by oncology patients .
This project, supported by the French Foundation against Cancer and Télévie, will be the first worldwide study on trance with a clinical application.
Dr Audrey Vanhaudenhuyse (Centre Interdisciplinaire d’Algologie, CHU & GIGA Consciousness), Dr Olivia Gosseries (researcher at FNRS, GIGA-Consciousness, University of Liège and “Centre du Cerveau”, CHU) and Charlotte Grégoire (post-doctoral researcher) will focus on the effects of learning self-induced cognitive trance on emotional management, pain, fatigue, anxiety and depression in patients with cancer (compared to the effects of learning to hypnosis or meditation).
of scientific collaborations — in particular with academic neuroscience laboratories — to study trance states as a way to reveal fundamental aspects of brain functions
of tools for a safe and impactful use of self-induced cognitive trance in a variety of fields
to share research and experiences (scientific meetings, articles, books, movies, conferences)
of self-induced cognitive trance for individuals and groups, in academic, therapeutic, corporate environments; development of curriculums to train self-induced cognitive trance teachers
for PhD and Post-Docs students
