The “Neuropsychoanalytic Study Group Frankfurt-Cologne” began working after a long period of preparation in October 1998. Over the past six years, three members (Dr. Kennel, Dr. Leuzinger-Bohleber, Dr. Röckerath) have participated in an interdisciplinary workshop between psychoanalysts and neuroscientists (supported by the Köhler Foundation, Darmstadt) on memory and have just published a two-volume book: M. Koukkou, M. Leuzinger-Bohleber, and W. Mertens, Eds. (1998). Erinnerung von Wirklichkeiten. Psychoanalyse and Neurowissenschaften im Dialog. (Vol. 1: Bestandsaufnahme; Vol 2: Folgerungen ftir die psychoanalytische Praxis). Stuttgart: Verlag Internationale Psychoanalyse. Also, the other members of the group have been working in this field for years, giving lectures at the Frankfurt Psychoanalytic Institute (Drs. Kennel, Schultz, Leuzinger-Bohleber) and at the Institute for Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy, Koeln University (Drs. Huber and Röckerath).

After this theoretical orientation the study group has now started with a more clinically oriented project and met twice since then. The group consists of six psychoanalysts, five of whom are psychiatrists-neurologists, and one a psychologist. In its work, the group intends to concentrate on a psychoanalytic approach to patients suffering from circumscribed lesions in the area supplied by the middle cerebral artery of the right hemisphere. The lesion should not exceed more than a quarter of that area.
