Flashing Glasses Could Prevent Trauma

Recently psychologists have revealed that flashing glasses could perhaps be used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), this is because of the way that sufferers process lights in their brains.

There seems to be a link between the way that they process lights and the way that people in a hypnotic state do, which some say means that PTSD are in a form of hypnotic state, which they need to be dragged out of.

Researchers created a pair of glasses with a light on either side, they then flash alternately and the person wearing them has to tell state which light came on first, further investigation showed that normal subjects used both hemispheres of the brain to tell which light flashed first, whereas PTSD sufferers tended to just use the right hemisphere on their brain.

Psychologists believe that once people have been diagnosed they can carry out techniques to promote the use of the left hemisphere of the brain.

As you can probably tell I am not an expert on this matter, however I would appreciate feedback from our more knowledgeable readers on this matter, do you think that this technique will work?
