Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Many studies have pointed out that the brain does not really store emotional or traumatic memories, but stores traces of information that are later used to create memories. The psychopathological signs of trauma are not static along a time-line and neither is the expression of traumatic memories. The psychotherapeutic method Terapia Reestruturativa Vivencial Peres (TRVP) integrates tools of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Altered State of Consciousness to help the patient restructure emotionally and cognitively traumatic events. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare changes in cerebral blood flow of patients during the retrieval of traumatic memories of present life and traumatic memories of supposed previous lives by using a script-driven symptom provocation paradigm adapted to Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT). Twenty patients with partial post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) were examined by means of brain SPECT (99Tc-ECD). ROIs were used to semi-quantify flow. Values were generated for each ROI and normalized to the average whole brain activity and a Statistical Parametric Mapping was used for data analyses.
The comparison between the baseline condition (relaxation) and the traumatic memories of present life showed significant attenuation of activity in the pre-frontal cortex
(X=±10, Y=+36, Z=-15 p<0.001), and left hippocampus (X=-32, Y=-9, Z=-15
p<0.001), as well as increase of activity in the left amygdale (X=-17, Y=-6, Z=-23
p<0.001). The comparison between the baseline condition and the traumatic memories from supposed previous life showed the same neural reciprocities. The third comparison between the traumatic memories of present life and the traumatic memories from supposed previous life, did not reach significance. These findings suggest that fantasy, false memories and confabulation are distinct cognitive processes of traumatic
memories of supposed previous lives, and neural mechanisms involved in these processes may share neural similarities with those underlying the fragmented and nonverbal nature of traumatic memories in partial PTSD.

Cerebral blood changes during retrieval of traumatic memories before and after psychotherapy
Publication year: 2007

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17288648
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Background - Traumatic memory is a key symptom in psychological trauma victims and may remain vivid for several years. Psychotherapy has shown that neither the psychopathological signs of trauma nor the expression of traumatic memories are static over time. However, few studies have investigated the neural substrates of psychotherapy-related symptom changes.
Method - We studied 16 subthreshold post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) subjects by using a script-driven symptom provocation paradigm adapted for single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) that was read aloud during traumatic memory retrieval both before and after exposure-based and cognitive restructuring therapy. Their neural activity levels were compared with a control group comprising 11 waiting-list subthreshold PTSD patients, who were age- and profile-matched with the psychotherapy group.
Results - Significantly higher activity was observed in the parietal lobes, left hippocampus, thalamus and left prefrontal cortex during memory retrieval after psychotherapy. Positive correlations were found between activity changes in the left prefrontal cortex and left thalamus, and also between the left prefrontal cortex and left parietal lobe.
Conclusions - Neural mechanisms involved in subthreshold PTSD may share neural similarities with those underlying the fragmented and non-verbal nature of traumatic memories in full PTSD. Moreover, psychotherapy may influence the development of a narrative pattern overlaying the declarative memory neural substrates.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The way people process stressors is critical in determining whether or not trauma will be experienced. Some clinical and neuroimaging findings suggest that posttraumatic stress disorder patients experience difficulty in synthesizing the traumatic experience in a comprehensive narrative. Religiousness and spirituality are strongly based on a personal quest for understanding of questions about life and meaning. Building narratives based on healthy perspectives may facilitate the integration of traumatic sensorial fragments in a new cognitive synthesis, thus working to decrease post-traumatic symptoms. Given the potential effects of spiritual and religious beliefs on coping with traumatic events, the study of the role of spirituality in fostering resilience in trauma survivors may advance our understanding of human adaptation to trauma.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Cardiac arrest (CA) survivors experience cognitive deficits including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is unclear whether these are related to cognitive/mental experiences and awareness during CPR. Despite anecdotal reports the broad range of cognitive/mental experiences and awareness associated with CPR has not been systematically studied.
METHODS:
The incidence and validity of awareness together with the range, characteristics and themes relating to memories/cognitive processes during CA was investigated through a 4 year multi-center observational study using a three stage quantitative and qualitative interview system. The feasibility of objectively testing the accuracy of claims of visual and auditory awareness was examined using specific tests. The outcome measures were (1) awareness/memories during CA and (2) objective verification of claims of awareness using specific tests.
RESULTS:
Among 2060 CA events, 140 survivors completed stage 1 interviews, while 101 of 140 patients completed stage 2 interviews. 46% had memories with 7 major cognitive themes: fear; animals/plants; bright light; violence/persecution; deja-vu; family; recalling events post-CA and 9% had NDEs, while 2% described awareness with explicit recall of ‘seeing’ and ‘hearing’ actual events related to their resuscitation. One had a verifiable period of conscious awareness during which time cerebral function was not expected.
CONCLUSIONS:
CA survivors commonly experience a broad range of cognitive themes, with 2% exhibiting full awareness. This supports other recent studies that have indicated consciousness may be present despite clinically undetectable consciousness. This together with fearful experiences may contribute to PTSD and other cognitive deficits post CA.
