International Neuropsychoanalysis Society: Open Research Days, 2002-2009
Oliver Turnbull and Maggie Zellner
As part of our mission to promote empirical research in neuropsychoanalysis, we thought it would be useful to share with our readers the contents of the various presentations (both oral and poster) from the Open Research Day at our International Neuropsychoanalysis Congresses.
Printing these lists in our Journal serves several purposes.
First, the work listed here illustrates the vibrancy and health of research in our field. The number of presentations has grown enormously since our first event, organized for Stockholm in 2002. As can be seen in the chart below, the scale of our research has grown at a wonderful pace.
Second, the listing here also serves as a testament to the diversity of our field's research interests: we have work with children and adults, work conducted in analytic sessions and in laboratories, work with neurological patients and using fMRI, clinical case reports, and controlled experimental studies—presented by scientists working on every continent. Again, the diversity is a tribute to the success of our field.
Third, promoting this event through our Journal allows like-minded individuals and interested readers to make contact with each other. For this reason, we have included email contact details for each presentation. We are hopeful that readers interested in (say) drug addiction, acquired brain injury, or empathy will communicate with those who share common interests, ask appropriate questions, and perhaps begin a dialogue. We are also hopeful that readers who know of neuropsychoanalysis, but not of any local colleagues in their country, will use the list to make more contacts—building together our regional groups (which now number approximately 30).
