Seven healthy subjects were exposed to imaginary food ingestion under hypnotic stimulus and plasma glucose, immunoreactive insulin and NEFA were measured during the experiment. Three subjects showed elevation in plasma insulin either after the induction of “hunger” or after the beginning of the “meal.” Fall in NEFA was seen in four subjects. No changes in blood glucose were detected.
