Abstract

Imagery rescripting (ImRs) is a promising intervention targeting emotional memory. Previous analogue studies have mainly investigated effects of ImRs during memory encoding and consolidation; experimental research on the effects and mechanisms of change in ImRs targeting consolidated memories is largely missing. The present study aimed to investigate effects of ImRs on consolidated memories using a multiple-day trauma film paradigm.
