I remember my Mother telling me about 'hidden messages' used on TV adverts; I know there was speculation at one point that the governement used it. Using flashing images so it gets processed in our brain but we don't know conciously know it? Anyone know anything on this topic?

Yes, its called 1/2 frame insertion and it does exist and it is also illegal. None the less it is still being done. They also use a technique for subliminal programming that uses a special frequency rate in the audio combined with "out of place" imagery.

Hi LC21!!

I'm pretty sure you're refering to "Subliminal messages"?

Here is an article about them, though a search will reveal more!

"Do hidden stimuli pass stealthily though the doors of perception? If so, do subliminal messages have any effect on the minds they invade? In the late 1950s, the American public was troubled with such questions after concealed ads were reportedly shown to unwitting movie-goers. The initial obsession with subliminals was short-lived, however, as the controversial practice of advertising "below the threshold of awareness" was neither proven effective nor widely used. But the seeds of subsequent subliminal scares were planted, and the notion that what you don't see may be as important as what you do see would rise again and again into the American consciousness. This Dossier special report explores the hysteria surrounding subliminal messages, from the 1950s to the not-so-distant future. "

Taken from the above source.
