    Intrusive buy safe wow gold or unwanted memories are often difficult to erase. Disturbing memories are a core feature of stress and trauma related clinical disorders such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Moreover, unsolicited recollections can also be associated with situations that have occurred in everyday life.

    A new study, published in the journal Psychological Science, finds that playing a visually demanding computer game may reduce the occurrence of the obtrusive memories over time.

    is particularly interesting because intrusive memories are the hallmark symptom of PTSD. there are recommended treatments for PTSD once it has become established, that is, at least one month after the traumatic event, but we lack preventative treatments that can be given earlier, says Holmes.

    this experimental work continues to show promise, it could inform new clinical interventions for consolidated memories that could be given a day or so after trauma to prevent or lessen the intrusive memories over time. people who have experienced a traumatic event don end up developing PTSD, but they often experience repeated intrusive visual memories of certain moments from the event in vivid detail. Someone who has been involved in a road traffic accident, for example, might continue to re experience the moment of impact, seeing vividly in their mind eye the moment a red car crashed into them.

    Previous research has shown that people who played the computer game Tetris shortly after viewing film of traumatic events experienced fewer intrusive memories over the following week, when they played within four hours of viewing the footage. However, the intervention is not practical as it is unlikely that many people would be able to receive such immediate treatment following a traumatic event in the real world.

    Therefore, Holmes and colleagues wanted to see whether they might be able to use a similar cognitive procedure to change older, already established memories a day later.

    The investigators developed an approach that used emerging research on memory. They built upon the theory of reconsolidation as a way of making established memories malleable and vulnerable to disruption, following the reactivation of that memory.

    They hypothesized that playing Tetris an engaging visuospatial task after memory reactivation would create a blockade that would interfere with the subsequent reconsolidation of visual intrusive memories. As a result, the frequency of intrusive memories would be reduced over time.

    In two experiments, the researchers had participants view films that contained scenes of traumatic content (for example, footage highlighting the dangers of drunk driving) as a way of experimentally inducing intrusive memories.

    Participants then returned to the lab 24 hours after watching the film. Using film footage as a form of experimental trauma is a well established technique for studying reactions, such as intrusive memories, in a controlled setting.

    In the first experiment, half of the participants had their memories of the film reactivated by viewing selected stills from the film footage, followed by a 10 minute filler task, and then 12 minutes of playing Tetris; the other participants completed only the filler task and then sat quietly for 12 minutes.

    The results showed that the participants who had their memories reactivated and played Tetris experienced significantly fewer intrusive memories in a diary over the next week than the participants who came to the lab and simply sat quietly for the equivalent period of time.
