In order to continue to forge new knowledge within the field of neuropsychoanalysis it is vitally important to conduct meaningful and scientifically sound research. This endeavour requires dedication, open-mindedness, resources (both financial and infrastructural) and the interdisciplinary knowledge and collaboration that is so valued and encouraged by the Neuropsychoanalysis Foundation. The overall goal is to promote a broad range of relevant research topics, including those which: (i) involve neurobiological aspects such as brain injury, neurophysiology measures, and/or pharmacological treatment; (ii) have some direct link to a neuroscientific or neuropsychoanalytic body of thought; (iii) involve psychoanalytic case presentations that can be analysed and interpreted from a neuropsychoanalytic perspective.
The Neuropsychoanalysis Foundation has grant funding available to researchers who are looking to investigate topics that have both neuroscientific and psychoanalytic aspects. Such studies can encompass: experimental research on animal or human subjects; investigations into neurological clinical populations; and/or the use of psychoanalytic hypotheses in neuroscientific investigations.

We are extremely fortunate to have had a number of successful and distinguished recipients of our grant funding, with each research project making a significant contribution to understanding the mind and brain.
We are also proud to be affiliated with a number of research labs from around that world that promote and support neuropsychoanalytic research. To view the current list of labs, please click here.
