Fig. 1

Schematic summary of the proposed influence of dissociation, self-reference and psychotherapeutic interventions on attention and memory during the processing of emotional stimuli. This figure summarizes how dissociation, self-reference and symptom severity may modulate the processing of emotional information in individuals with borderline personality disorder, starting from attention to the stimulus, encoding into working memory, storage into long-term memory and thus, again, modulating the attentional focus selected. Figure adapted from Winter et al., [195]
