Neuropsychoanalysis in Practice: Brain, Self and Objects

Chapter 7 deals with self-objects in the context of the psychodynamic concept of narcissism as introduced by Kohut and self psychology. Thus narcissism is to be understood not merely as a pathological condition or as a personality trait in healthy individuals, but rather as a basic and universal feature of the human psyche. Neuronal mechanisms that focus on affective assignment and interoexteroceptive linkage are discussed, and are related to the psychodynamic concept of self-objects that is regarded as central to narcissism.
