Editors' Introduction

Edward Nersessian and Mark Solms

The issue of Neuro-Psychoanalysis is organized around a paper that Allan Hobson presented recently at the Neuro-Psychoanalysis Center of the New York Psychoanalytic Institute. Mark Solms's discussion of Hobson's paper (which also derives from the New York meeting) is reproduced here following the target article, together with two further, invited commentaries by neuroscientific and psychoanalytic experts on dreaming (Allen Braun and Morton Reiser, respectively). These commentaries are followed by Hobson and Pace-Schott's reply. This interchange closes with an appendix, contributed by Margaret Gilmore and Edward Nersessian, which succinctly summarizes the main points of Freud's dream theory for nonpsychoanalytic readers. Readers should note that the appendix was unseen by the target author and the commentators at the time that they wrote their original papers. However, it was read by Hobson before he drafted his reply to the commentaries (as is evident from the fact that he refers to it in that reply). The discussion of Hobson's paper will now continue on our website (, which serves as an electronic supplement to the physical journal. This online discussion opens with Mark Solms's response to the dialogue so far, followed by further invited commentaries by various neuroscientific and psychoanalytic experts in this area. Reader participation in this ongoing discussion is encouraged (see the website for details of how to participate).

Readers' comments on Paul Whittle's paper in this issue (on experimental psychology and psychoanalysis) are also strongly encouraged.
