Integrating Neurobiology and EMDR Part 1 of 4

We think of ourselves as having “one brain". However, from an evolutionary and functional perspective, we actually have 3 brains, and at least 2 of them are bilaterally split. Understanding the evolution and function of the brain stem, limbic system and the neo-cortex helps to understand how trauma wires the emotional networks of threat, survival and adaptation. The prefrontal cortex, where higher order processing occurs, is the last part of the brain to fully develop and the first to drop off during trauma and subsequent triggering. This leaves the client dependent on the primitive responses of the limbic system and brain stem. The Adaptive Information Processing model allows for information stored in the Prefrontal Cortex to come back on line.

Integrating Neurobiology & EMDR: Part 2 

Basic Neurobiology: Implications for PTSD, EMDR and Adaptive Information Processing

Part 2 workshop will describe and illustrate:

• neuron structures, including the soma, dendrite, axon and synapse; the action potential

• Hebbs Axiom (actually first described by Freud) of learning by association, "neurons that fire together at one time, will tend to fire together in the future"

• the over-stabilization of synaptic junctions during threat or arousal

• the synchronous oscillation of networks (40 Hz Gamma-Band Activity) that allow networks to fire together and conversely become unsynchronized under stress or trauma which causes higher order functioning to drop off

• how most of the programming (learning) in the human brain is a result of human interaction (Daniel Siegel, 1999) and (Allan Schore, (2009)

• neuroplasticity: the brain is not “hard wired” but remains remarkable plastic and subject to neural based therapies (Norman Doidge, 2007) and (Francine Shapiro)

Exploring the Thalamus and Neural Integration

Dr. Uri Bergmann's recent formulation of the neuriobiology of EMDR, revisits in greater detail the functional anatomy of brain components introduced in the (Part 1) video on evolution, describes neuronal oscillation, memory and thalamo-cortical temporal binding and describes the activity of the thalamus in relationship to EMDR processing.

Brain Development & Erikson's Psycho-Social Development

Explore the relationship between neurobiology, EMDR-AIP and Erikson's Psycho-Social Developmental Model. When one integrates these three modalities, we can understand how clients get "stuck" in the present with the negative cognition's, cognitive delays and behavioral mal-adaptations that are consistent with the various stages of neurological development and the corresponding stages of psycho-social development at the time of the abuse or trauma.
