Abstract

Neuropsychoanalysis in Practice discusses the various neuronal mechanisms that may enable the transformation of neuronal into psychological states, looks at how these processes are altered in psychiatric disorders like depression and schizophrenia, and focuses specifically on how the brain is organized and how it enables the brain to differentiate between neuronal and psychodynamic states, that is, the brain and the psyche.
