Controlling attention & meditation with active EMDR software


In the adaptive data processing model, the brain makes the information that reaches it a physiological-based system functional. Eye movements, desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), which are used in the treatment of post-traumatic diseases, are physiological based therapies that allow the treatment of isolated memories. The aim of the study is to perform active EMDR software for people who have difficulty in systematically moving eye movements and to determine the contribution of visual and auditory stimuli used during treatment to the patient's attention and meditation during the treatment process. Focus and meditation data were obtained from 10 different volunteers with Neurosky device to determine the effectiveness of the system performed and the optimum parameters of visual / auditory parameters. Visual stimulus focusing on the left circle and the stimulus type that changed the meditation most were determined. During the right left eye movements, it was determined that giving different frequency auditory stimuli to the subjects did not affect the meditation of the subjects and could increase or decrease the focus.
