Examining Traumatic Memories
Re-Encoding and Reconsolidation
Keywords:neuroscience, trauma, memory, information theory, re-encoding, reconsolidation
AbstractIn this paper I will discuss a short review of traumatic memories based on neuroscience and information theory. Based on neuroscience and information theory, I will present a new technique that may rewrite the traumatic memories during reconsolidation. The presented technique is based on addition of new information at the time of recall of traumatic memories, which may result in re-encoding of these memories during the reconsolidation. The resultant rewritten memories seem to last for a very long time.
