Presenter: Dr Fidel Lolo, PhD in molecular biology
Our recent research in mechanobiology, a field at the interface between physics and biology, has led to new important discoveries about the ability of cells to sense their microenvironment, indicating that there are diferente layers of sensitivity. I will be speculating about the possible parallelism between this cellular hierarchy of sensing and the individual consciousness/unconsciousness distinction proposed by psychoanalysis.
About the AINPSA
The Iberian Neuropsychoanalysis Association (AINPSA) has emerged as the result of a common interest shared by people among psychoanalytical, neuroscientific, and biological backgrounds. Our main goal is to facilitate the study, research and dissemination of Freud’s ideas together with their current developments in neuropsychoanalysis. By holding regular meetings we aim at promoting open dialogue between different disciplines and groups to broaden and deepen our understanding of the body/mind relationship in a dual-aspect monism way. Topics include, but are not limited to, consciousness and free-energy principle, biological underpinnings of the mental, psychosomatology, affective and cognitive neurosciences, etc. We also want to create and develop neuropsychoanalytical projects with practical applications in Health, Arts and Education.
