The power of thought is beyond measure. If we sincerely believe that our index finger is five times bigger than it really is, our sense of touch improves. Researchers demonstrated that this is the case in an experiment in which the participants were put under professional; hypnosis.

The study shows that our tactile perception is affected and can be altered by our mental processes. from Science News
