The main focus of our activities over the past few months has been a fortnightly lecture series (Wednesday evenings) entitled “A Beginner's Guide to the Brain.” This is a user-friendly introductory overview of recent advances in neuroscience that seem relevant for psychoanalytic theory and/or practice. The series began in January 2000 and was massively oversubscribed. We have therefore scheduled a repeat run, which will begin in September. We have also recorded the complete series of lectures on video. Interested parties should contact Ms. Paula Barkay at The lectures are given by Mark Solms and cover the following topics:

1.   Introduction to Basic Concepts

2.   Brain and Mind: How Do They Relate?

3.   Consciousness and the Unconscious

4.   Emotion and Motivation

5.   Memory and Phantasy

6.   Dreams and Hallucinations

7.   Genetic and Environmental Influences on Mental Development

8.   Differences between Left and Right Hemispheres

9.   How Does the “Talking Cure” Work?

10.  Where Do We Go From Here?

We are planning to follow these lectures up with a series of interdisciplinary clinical workshops devoted to specific disorders.

We are also busily involved in the organization of the international conference scheduled for July: Psychoanalytic and Neuroscientific Perspectives on Emotion. At the time of going to press, this conference is fully booked but there is a waiting list for cancellations.
