Background: Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing [EMDR] is an innovative, evidence-based and effective psychotherapy for post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD]. As with other psychotherapies, the effectiveness of EMDR contrasts with a limited…

The study aim was to investigate Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) EMDR therapy on children with post-traumatic disorder (PTSD) in traffic accidents. The research population consists of children 7-11 years old in Tehran city who…

The present research assessed how engaging in bilateral eye movements influences brain activity. Participants had their resting-state brain activity recorded with electroencephalography (EEG) before and after they performed 30 s of bilateral eye…

L’EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) est un traitement des traumatismes utilisé dans le monde entier en centres spécialisés pour les stress post-traumatiques. L’auteur décrit comment il intègre cette nouvelle « technologie » à…

L’approche psychothérapeutique intégrative EMDR repose sur des concepts issus d’observation faites dans l’état de stress post-traumatique (ESPT) des données de la biologie [1 ] et sur le modèle du traitement adaptatif de l’information. Dans l’ESPT,…

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a popular treatment for PTSD. However, little is known about the memory effects of EMDR. Using a misinformation paradigm, we examined whether lateral eye movements, as used in EMDR, enhance…

Background and Objectives: Bilateral eye-movements (EMs) and visual mental imagery both require working memory resources. When performed together, they compete for these resources, which can cause various forms of mental imagery to become impaired…

Do eye movements primarily affect emotion, as in Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR), or memory retrieval, as in Saccade-Induced Retrieval Enhancement (SIRE)? Despite growing confidence in the effectiveness of the former, the…

Background and objectives: A growing body of research has shown that negative, intrusive mental imagery plays a prevalent and causal role in social anxiety, and is qualitatively different to voluntarily generated imagery. Negative imagery can be…

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is considered highly efficacious for the treatment of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and has proved to be a valid treatment approach with a wide range of applications. However, EMDR’s mechanisms of…

EMDR is now considered as an elective treatment for PTSD and its efficacy is being proved in several other psychological conditions. Nevertheless, the EMDR underlying mechanisms of action have not yet been fully clarified. At the moment being,…

Introduction: Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an evidence-based treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A key element of this therapy is simultaneously recalling an emotionally disturbing memory and…

Background: Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective psychologi-cal treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder. Recalling a memory while simultaneously making eye movements (EM) decreases a memory’s vividness and/or…

We investigated eye movement during past and future thinking. Participants were invited to retrieve past events and to imagine future events while their scan path was recorded by an eye-tracker. Past thinking triggered more fixation (p < .05), and…

Can an experiment be replicated in a mechanical fashion without considering the processes underlying the initial results? Here I will consider a non-replication of Saccade Induced Retrieval Enhancement (SIRE) and argue that it results from focusing…

An effective treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder is eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). The explanation of the efficacy is captured in the working memory (WM) theory. Both eye movements (EM) and recalling an aversive memory…

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy for posttraumatic stress disorder involves making eye movements (EMs) during recall of a traumatic image. Experimental studies have shown that the dual task decreases self-reported memory…

La desensibilización y el reprocesamiento por medio de movimientos oculares (EMDR) ha suscitado ungran número de estudios desde su aparición en 1989. El objetivo principal de este artículo es describir sudesarrollo y evolución hasta la actualidad.…

En déconstruisant la thérapie de désensibilisation et de retraitement par les mouvements oculaires (EMDR), les chercheurs ont découvert que l’effet des mouvements oculaires sur les souvenirs négatifs est probablement dû à l’administrateur central. On…

Background: Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). During EMDR, the patient recalls traumatic memories while making eye movements (EMs). Making EMs during recall is…

Background and Objectives During EMDR trauma therapy, performing EM taxes WM, and simultaneously recalled memories become less vivid. It has been proposed that this WM occupation results from CVI which occurs during EM. This study sought to compare…

EMDR is an effective treatment for people diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder. The traditional technique of EMDR combines the activation of distressing reminders with guided rhythmic eye movements. The present article reviews the current…

Background: According to the working memory (WM) theory of eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), dual tasks that tax WM during memory recall reduce image vividness and emotionality of memory during future recalls when no dual task is…

Recent outcomes for Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy indicate that as many as 60–72% of patients retain their PTSD diagnosis after treatment with CPT or PE. One emerging therapy with the potential to augment…

According to working memory theory, a task that taxes working memory during simultaneous focus on a memory will tend to reduce memory vividness and emotional intensity. Results have been found for both negative and positive memories. Some studies…

Background and objectives: Experimental research suggests that working memory (WM) taxation reduces craving momentarily. Using a modified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) procedure, prolonged reductions in craving and relapse…

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder. During this treatment, patients recall traumatic memories while making horizontal eye movements (EM). Studies have shown that EM not…

In dismantling eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, researchers have found that the central executive is likely responsible for the effect of eye movements on negative memories. Arguably, however, researchers have not…

Background and Objectives: This study sought to reconcile two lines of research. Previous studies have identified a prevalent and causal role of negative imagery in social phobia and public speaking anxiety; others have demonstrated that lateral eye…

In an investigation of the interhemispheric coherence (IhC) model for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) bilateral eye movement (BEM) effects, 30 participants were exposed to a stationary dot, a blinking red/green dot, or saccadic…

EMDR seems to be working through taxation of the working memory. A large amount of research has been carried out demonstrating that vividness and emotionality of negative images declines when working memory is taxed while the charged image is…

The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of bilateral left right saccade eye movements (BEM) versus fixation (FIX) along the median plane on the SUD related to negative autobiographic events. BEM or FIX were stimulated with visual-acoustic…

Handedness can be used as a marker for interhemispheric interaction, which can produce memory benefits. Bilateral saccadic eye movements can be used to manipulate levels of interhemispheric interaction. This study measured the effects of handedness…

Objectives: Recently, Interest has been increase on the cognitive and emotional effects of bilateral eye movement. However, there is little research related to the subject in Korea. In this study, we evaluated the effects of bilateral eye movement to…

Background and Objectives: Eye movements (EM) during recall of an aversive memory is a treatment element unique to Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Experimental studies have shown that EM reduce memory vividness and/or…

Traumatic events and PTSD are frequent in severe mental disorders, initiate and worsen the course and outcome. Therefore, psychotherapeutic interventions in this indication are clinically important but have been rarely studied. In this workshop we…

Earlier this year we published a paper that gave an up-to-date review of the evidence for whether eye movement had an effect in facilitating the processing of trauma memories (Lee & Cuijpers, 2013). In this paper we did a meta-analysis to look at…

Memories that are recalled while working memory (WM) is taxed, e.g., by making eye movements (EM), become blurred during the recall + EM and later recall, without EM. This may help to explain the effects of Eye Movement and Desensitisation and…

Andere bilaterale stimulatie voor pijnpatiënten? Bij de behandeling van patiënten met chronische pijn met EMDR is er aan het eind een fase waarin de actuele pijn zelf genomen wordt als target (de Roos, Veenstra, 2009). Mijn bevinding hierbij is dat…
