Monoideism was a term developed by James Braid as he wrestled with trying to deliniate the mechanisms underlying hypnosis.

Braid changed his sleep-based physiological theory to a psychological one which emphasized mental concentration on a single idea, giving this the name of monoideism in 1847".[1] Braid summarized and contrasted his own view with the other views prevailing at that time.
