Prague Neuropsychoanalysis Group

Prague Neuropsychoanalysis Group

International Neuropsychoanalysis Society


For all those interested in neuroscience, psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, psychiatry, and psychology that are based in or near Prague

We are in the process of forming a Prague Neuropsychoanalysis Group, please contact us if you are interested in joining or to join our email list. We plan to start a series of film screenings and discussions and initiate a Prague-based research programme in the rapidly developing interdisciplinary field of neuropsychoanalysis. Covering topics such as emotion, memory, dreams, psychosis, depression, anxiety, object relations, attachment, development, neurological and psychological disorders, consciousness and the unconscious. The aim is to encourage dialogue between neuroscientists, psychiatrists, psychologists, psychoanalysts and others concerned with the living mind/brain. Here are some articles and abstracts, from recent publications and from the Freud 2006 Conference in Prague: 'Freud's Screen Memories in the Light of Contemporary Psychoanalysis and the Neurosciences'.

International Neuropsychoanalysis Society

The Prague Group is part of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society and aims to be an active contributor to the journal Neuro-Psychoanalysis, and scientific congresses and workshops. In particular we aim to form a regular delegation to the London Neuropsychoanalysis Workshop: From Cognitive Psychology and Neuroscience to the Couch: Is There a Common Language?

What is Neuropsychoanalysis?

Neuropsychoanalysis is a rapidly developing new interdisciplinary research field, combining research from cognitive and affective neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry, psychopharmacology, psychoanalysis and attachment research, bridging the gap between biological and psycho-social perspectives and providing a fresh approach to the ancient problem of the relation between mind and body.
