Neuropsychoanalysis Ireland Study Group
Next NPSA Ireland Study Group Tuesday 19th January 2016
Speaker: Dr Julie Kelly, Research Associate Professor,
TCD Institute of Neuroscience and the Department of Neurology
Topic: Borderline Personality Disorder from a neuroscience perspective
The Neuropsychoanalysis Study Group is an interdisciplinary group open to neurologists, neuropsychologists, neuroscientists, mental health professionals, philosophers, psychiatrists, psychotherapists and psychologists with an interest in the area of mind and brain. The aim of the Group is to create an environment for interested parties to study and discuss how the insights of neuroscience and psychoanalysis can be synthesised towards a better understanding of mind and brain. For a fuller explanation, see Solms & Turnbull 2011 “What is Neuropsychoanalysis” (open access). The Group is part of an international network with this aim and reports on a regular basis to the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society. The Group also functions as a base for exchanging professional news, enhancing interdisciplinary careers and forming clinical and research collaborations.
Each meeting consists of a presentation of neuroscientific research or psychoanalytically-informed clinical work with neurological patients, followed by extensive discussion by the Group. To join the mailing list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to apply with a minimum of 2-3 lines, indicating your discipline and nature of your interest.
