Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is an established treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, its working mechanism remains unclear. This study explored physiological correlates of eye movements during EMDR in relation to current hypotheses; distraction, conditioning, orienting response activation, and REM-like(More)
During the last few years, a number of children of asylum applicants in Sweden developed an apathetic or unconscious state. The syndrome was perceived as new, and various explanations were advanced such as factitious disorder, intoxication, or stress. Considering a potential association between traumatic stress and regulation of steroids biosynthesis, this(More)
BACKGROUND The present study is part of a longitudinal study of recently resettled refugees with the aim of learning which factors in their daily life influence health as measured by self-report and stress-responsive hormones. METHODS In a group of recently resettled refugees with a high incidence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), diagnosed by(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and dissociation as well as cumulative symptom load on language learning during the introduction phase in re-settled refugees. METHOD Participants were re-settled refugees of Iraqi origin. They were assessed by means of a structured interview for PTSD at(More)
We present an implementation of the Safety-Critical Java profile (SCJ), targeted for low-end embedded platforms with as little as 16 kB RAM and 256 kB flash. The distinctive features of the implementation are a combination of a lean Java virtual machine (HVM), with a bare metal kernel implementing hardware objects, first level interrupt handlers, and native(More)
A Java profile suitable for development of high integrity embedded systems is presented. It is based on event handlers which are grouped in missions and equipped with respectively private handler memory and shared mission memory. This is a result of our previous work on developing a Java profile, and is directly inspired by interactions with the Open Group(More)
We propose a new, minimal specification for real-time Java for safety critical applications. The intention is to provide a profile that supports programming of applications that can be validated against safety critical standards such as DO-178B [15]. The proposed profile is in line with the Java specification request JSR-302: Safety Critical Java(More)
UNLABELLED A screening procedure (The Health Leaflet; HL) to assist social workers in finding subjects with possible post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in recently resettled refugees is presented. It is compared with two established self-rating instruments, the Harvard Trauma Questionnaire (HTQ) and Impact of Event Scale-22 (IES-22), as well as(More)
We present a rationale for a selection of tools that assist developers of hard real-time applications to verify that programs conform to a Java real-time profile and that platform-specific resource constraints are satisfied. These tools are specialised instances of more generic static analysis and model checking frameworks. The concepts are illustrated by(More)
