Work by Dr Cullerre: Magnétisme et Hypnotisme, exposé des Phénomènes observés pendant le Sommeil Nerveus provoqué au point de vue clinique, psychologique, thérapeutique et Médico-Légal, avec un résumé historique du Magnetisme Animal.

Par le Dr. A. Cullerre, Membre correspondant de la Société Médico-Psychologique.

Dr Alexandre Cullerre (1849–1934) was chief medical officer of the asylum of La Roche-sur-Yon (La Grimaudiére) from 1880 to 1910. He had defended his thesis in 1873: Recherche sur la période de début de la paralysie générale. A prolific author, we also owe him Nervosisme et névroses: Magnétisme et hypnotisme, 1887; Les frontières de la folie, 1888; Traité pratique des maladies mentales, 1890. A member of the Société médico-psychologique, he is the author of numerous articles in Annales médico-psychologiques and other medical journals. He also wrote Notice sur l'asile d'aliénés de La Roche-sur-Yon.

In the first pages of his 1887 treatise Nervosisme et névroses: Hygiène des énervés et des névropathes, Dr Cullerre describes a number of nervous disorders, described as ‘disease of the century’, and the appropriate hygiene rules to prevent and get better.

The work presented here develops extensively the following subjects: Magnetism over the centuries, from Mesmer to Braid and to the present time, subjects and procedures, general phenomena of hypnotism, motility and sensitivity, hypnotic suggestion, illusions, provoked hallucinations and impulses, suggestive in wakefulness, the state of fascination, psychology of hypnotism, hemi-hypnotism from a psychological point of view, the applications of hypnotism in therapeutics, hypnotism and code, etc.
