Ögonrörelseterapi aktiverar REM-systemet Eye movement therapy activate REM system

Description

Behandlingsmetoden EMDR – så kallad ögonrörelseterapi – mot posttraumatisk stress (PTS) har länge varit omdiskuterad. Men en ny studie från Karolinska Institutet visar nu att metoden troligen aktiverar REM-systemet, vilket underlättar för patienten att bearbeta de plågsamma minnena. – Vi vet att EMDR fungerar bra som behandling vid posttraumatisk stress, säger docent Hans-Peter Söndergaard vid Institutionen för folkhälsovetenskap.

EMDR treatment method - so-called eye movement therapy - to post-traumatic stress (PTS) has long been controversial. But a new study from Karolinska Institutet now shows that the method is likely to activate the REM system, enabling the patient to process the painful memories. - We know that EMDR works well as a treatment for post-traumatic stress, says Dr. Hans-Peter Sondergaard at Department of Public Health.
