Neuroimaging has been shown to be a powerful tool to investigate EMDR neurobiological correlates demonstrating a clear association between normalization of brain functional changes and symptoms regression. In the recent past, a series of EEG…

Starting from an overview on our own findings, the current state of research on EMDR working mechanism will be reviewed and described in three domains: (1) reduction of subjective stress and psychophysiological dearousal during treatment sessions…

Exposure to childhood adversity markedly increases the risk of developing mood, anxiety, personality, substance abuse and psychotic disorders. Recent studies suggest that clinical sequelae may stem, at least in part, from enduring adverse effects on…
