TranceScience carries out scientific research, while exploring the potential applications of trance in a diverse range of fields
TranceScience is responsible for a number of research projects on brain structure and activity in trance states by dissociating conscious and unconscious processes exhibiting cognitive expansion.
TranceScience is exploring multiple applications of self-induced cognitive trance, including:
First global study on self-induced trance with a 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 in 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 self- hypnosis or meditation).
of scientific collaborations — in particular with academic neuroscience laboratories — to study trance states as a way of discovering the fundamental aspects of brain function
of tools for the safe and effective use of self-induced cognitive trance in a diversity of fields
to share research and experiments (scientific meetings, articles, books, movies, conferences)
of self-induced cognitive trance for individuals and groups, in academic, therapeutic, corporate environments; development of programs to train teachers in self-induced cognitive trance
for PhD and Post-Docs students
