This paper presents a cognitive model on electroconvulsive treatment to reduce the stress level in body. The stress reduction is triggered by a cognitive electroconvulsive treatment that uses persistent manipulation of this treatment. The goal of this treatment is to decrease the strength between certain parts of the brain which are in charge of the stress. The proposed adaptive cognitive model aims to illustrate the effect of the therapy on different components of the brain. The model begins with a state of tough, powerful, and consistent stress within a post-traumatic disorder patient, and after following electroconvulsive treatment, the stress level starts to decrease from time to time according to each treatment session. The results show that, in the end, the disorder person will have a declined stress in contrast to not performing electroconvulsive treatment.
