Crossing The Synapse: Psychoanalysis And Neuroscience Join Forces
ARNOLD MODELL & WALTER FREEMAN IN CONVERSATION
On November 7, we have the unique opportunity to participate in a conversation between two of the most seminal thinkers on the relationship between neuroscience and psychoanalysis, addressing the question of "how we are who we are".
Arnold Modell, a distinguished psychoanalyst, has contributed to an integration of modern and classical views of mental organization with the findings of neuroscience, to establish psychoanalysis as a "neurobiology of meaning."
The work of Walter Freeman, noted biophysicist, has catapulted neuroscience from a reductionist model to a non-linear dynamic system, in which the currency of the brain is primarily the generation of meaning and only secondarily information processing.
