Clinical findings showed that a single session of approx. 25 minute behavioural intervention (reminder cue + mental rotation instructions + Tetris game play) reduce intrusive memories of trauma over one week (Yiadurai, 2018, Horsch, 2017). Idealy it should be applied before the first night of sleep after the exposure. Longer term studies needed.
Inflammatory state – Low INF, low TNF – (Michopolous 2019).
Skin Conductance – biomarker and vulnerability marker (Hinrichs 2017, 2019).
FKBP5 (and multiple other genes) expression (Segman et al., 2005).
Nausea in posttraumatic period associated with PTSD (Michopoulos 2019).
High levels of skin conductnce. Galvanic Skin Response (eSense) (Hinrichs et al., 2017).
Sleep deprivation – some benefit (Porcheret, 2015). Not benefitial in reduction of traumatic intrusions (Sopp, 2020). Data is contradictory (Porcheret, 2019). week: sleeping “too little” or “too much” was associated with more intrusive memories (Porcheret, 2020).
Computerized Visuospatial Tasks (Iyadurai et al, 2018; Horsh et al, 2017).
