All in the Mind - On the Couch in a brain scanner!: Putting the neuro back into Freud


Another excellent episode of All in the Mind, hosted by Natasha Mitchell. This week she looks at putting some neuroscience back into psychoanalytic theory (in my mind, the best person in this field is Allan Schore). Maggie Zellner is a new name to me - now I need to read more of her work.

For a discussion of this topic, check out the All in the Mind blog, which contains a few clips that did not make it into the show.

On the Couch in a brain scanner!: Putting the neuro back into Freud

Putting the ego, id and subjective Self back into the brain sciences, and vice versa. That's the ambitious quest of Neuro-psychoanalysis. Natasha Mitchell joins neuroscientist and psychoanalyst, Dr Maggie Zellner, in a very psychoanalytic sort of city, the Big Apple!
