eye-roll sign

the tendency of the eyes to roll upward in their sockets during the onset of sleep; the eye roll can also occur when people close their eyes during hypnotic induction. It has been proposed that the degree of eye roll is an index of hypnotic suggestibility, though whether the eye roll is a correlate to or plays a causal role in suggestibility is unknown.
