The neurobiology of EMDR: Recent insights and their contribution to the treatment of dissociation
This presentation will explore the formation and consolidation of emotions and memory, various possible neural mechanisms of EMDR's treatment effects; with an emphasis on cerebellar mechanisms, and their direct relation to information processing and frontal lobe activation. Recent knowledge regarding Allan Schore's work on the orbitofrontal cortex and Steven Porges' work on the brainstem will be explored; with a major emphasis given to their implication for improved techniques to facilitate EMDR processing.
