Archeology of Mind
The ‘Archaeology of Mind’ is a study group within the Italian Psychoanalytical Association, First Roman Chapter, Via Panama 48, Roma. The focus of interest is affective neuroscience and its integration with psychoanalysis. The main theoretical reference is the research of Jaak Panksepp. This group in active in both theoretical and clinical matters, has published books, organised conventions, and presented seminars. At present our research is on defense mechanisms as intended in psychoanalysis on the one hand and by the neurosciences, and particularly the affective neurosciences, on the other. The group, which is coordinated by Cristiana Pirrongelli and Teodosio Giacolini, is costituited by Carla Busato Barbaglio, Elisabetta Greco, Anatolia Salone, Francesco Castellet y Ballarà, Amedeo Falci, and Guglielmo Spiombi, who are all psychoanalysts from the SPI and IPA, with training in psychiatry, neurology, psychology and neuroscience.
