Ipnosi, flessibilità cognitiva e sistemi di controllo e di supervisione dell’attenzione (Parte prima) Frontal cortex and prefrontal cortex areas have a primary role in regulating the attentive mechanisms that are important in many cognitive and behavioural activities. Global alteration of cortical activity and modulation of attentive capacities are associated with an increase of cognitive flexibility and consequently with focusing and alteration of reality and consciousness during hypnosis. Anatomical e functional interactions of different and integrated neural circuits that are important for cognitive control structures of attentive mechanisms in the phenomenology of hypnosis, are explained below.
