The role of the cerebellum in EMDR processing: An exploration of neurobiological mechanisms

Description

This conference presentation abstract summarizes a workshop that details the role of the cerebellum in EMDR processing by synthesizing the existing research with theoretical speculation correlated with Francine Shapiro's model of the accelerated information processing system. Specific attention was given to findings involving the cerebellum in many aspects of information processing, especially direct activation processes of the orbito-frontal cortex and left prefrontal areas (particularly Broca's language area). An overview is provided of the primary physiological processes that appear to be activated by EMDR especially those attributed to the limbic system, memory formation and consolidation and the neurophysiological processes involved in REM sleep. Two models of underlying neural mechanisms are detailed.
