This Note examines the problems bearing on admissibility of hypnotically induced or refreshed testimony in view of the literature discussing the effects of hypnosis on the witness. It focuses on whether the rule on inadmissibility adopted in Peoples should be a per se rule or should be subject to limited exceptions. Finally it considers the effect of the decision on criminal investigations and law enforcement.
