Correcting the cognitive map with EMDR: A possible neurobiological mechanism
The experience of life is commonly likened to a journey through a landscape. This cannot be an accident; it must be based on neurobiological activity in the brain. If one is fortunate the journey is made through a pleasant landscape, with occasional mild adventures to vary the monotony. Travelling is an ancient evolutionary feature of all animals, and all animal brains have developed fairly uniform methods of recording the body's motion through the environment, in different degrees of complexity (O'Keefe & Nadel, 1978; Stickgold, 2002). Occasionally, a traumatic disaster upsets an otherwise placid journey.
