Flashburn was a term used by the Jedi Order to describe the reaction in which certain Jedi or Force-sensitives shutdown areas of their minds in reaction to emotional trauma. With sections of their memory seemingly ceasing to exist, those who used the technique were unable to remember details about the event at the center of the trauma.


Jedi Master Corran Horn was flashburned when he believed his wife Mirax Horn was killed, shortly after the death of the Emperor Reborn.
