history of psychiatry (part 4)

James Braid (1795-1860)

James Braid was the one who coined the term HYPNOSIS, and was the one who separated hypnotism from animal magnetism and began to study the hypnotic phenomenon more scientifically.

He wrote a book name NEURYPNOLOGY; or the rationale of nervous sleep in 1843. He put hypnosis in its right way.
