ah, interesting question nonetheless. i'd imagine there are many ways to detect this, but i'd like to see a comparison of methods.

comment Practical Use For a Neuroimager
@jsn There are thousands of publications on brain machine interfaces. The possibilities are limitless, but pragmatically it depends on how well you can identify particular brain states. I suspect that if you post the same open-ended question on UX, it will get closed. I suggest doing some research and refining your question a bit. Good luck!

comment Why does speaking with rhythm help a subject get into a trance?
Hypnotism is often considered "fringe" psychology, and there is no mention of "speaking with rhythm" on the wikipedia for hypnosis. Perhaps you could do some more research, and provide a few citations (preferably scientific articles) that indicate this technique is commonly used in hypnosis. Also, who are these "hypnotism teachers"?

comment What does the literature suggest about the optimal strategy for quickly memorizing various types of content?
Welcome to cogsci.SE! While this has makings of a decent answer, it unfortunately does not meet our quality standards as is. Answers on this site are expected to provide scientific evidence, which means providing citations to back up your claims. Ideally, this means citing primary sources that corroborate your answer, though Wikipedia links will sometimes suffice. If you find relevant citations, you can edit your post to include this information.

comment What is the bias/thought process that results in distrust of “formal” knowledge in favor of “folk” knowledge?
Chinn & Brewer (1993) has something so say about this
