On the origin of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing: A response to Rosen

Description

Rosen argues that the eye movements experienced by Shapiro during the incident leading to her development of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) could not, as she later inferred, have been saccadic. The present author disputes Rosen's conclusion by showing that his arguments are based on a faulty understanding of the nature of saccadic eye movements or are irrelevant to Shapiro's claim.
