PLATE VIII

The first tracing shows the patient still in normal sleep, with occasional fits of restlessness, the patient becoming more and more restless as she neared the waking state. The rest of the tracings show the patient both in the waking state and in hypnosis and the different reactions made during attempts at distraction which utterly failed. Rhythm is not followed; respiratory disturbances at multiples of five in counting are not present. The subconscious habit disappeared with the formed synthesis in the normal sleeping state.
