“One of the simplest ways of explaining the effects of EMDR is to describe its activation of the information-processing system. Target events remained unprocessed because the immediate biochemical responses to the trauma have left it isolated in neurobiological stasis. When the client tracks a moving finger or attends to a hand tap, tone, or even a fixed point on a wall, active information processing is initiated to attend to the present stimulus. If the client is asked to attend simultaneously both to this stimulus and to the traumatic memory, the active information-processing mechanism is linked to and processes the target event as well as the current stimulus. This processing mechanism is physiologically configured to take the information to an adaptive resolution. Perhaps the rapid processing occurs because the clinician guides the client to the appropriate targets (and to the proper alignment of the components of the targeted experience) and because other procedural elements prevent client avoidance or induce the associative process.

However, the actual neurological concomitants may not be discovered for decades. In the meanwhile, clinical observations of EMDR effects may provide investigators in the areas of neurobiology and memory research an opportunity to better understand the physiological processes. The rapid treatment effects of EMDR offer an opportunity to observe the standard patterns of memory association and emotional or cognitive processing, as well as the differential effects of processing long-standing and more recent memories. Thus, in many ways, EMDR may provide a window to the brain.”
