Ideomotor Response

Ideomotor is a common term found in hypnosis studies. The term is such – ideo means ideas and motor refers to muscular action.

When an idea is formed in our mind, it could send some signals to various parts of our body and cause them to respond. For eg, when a person is entering into hypnosis, that impression in his mind caused his eyes to feel heavy so much so that he wants to close them.
