In Memoriam

The editors would like to record with sadness the passing, first of James Schwartz, then of William Grossman, and most recently of Mortimer Ostow.

Dr. Schwartz joined our Advisory Board at the inception of the journal. He was a highly respected neuroscientist and played a pivotal part in the formation of the first neuropsychoanalytic group (in New York), and he was central to the research program that resulted in Eric Kandel being awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine.

Dr. Grossman was a member of the Editorial Policy Committee of our journal, again since its inception. He was a towering intellect and a leading member of the New York Psychoanalytic Society. His enthusiastic participation in our activities since the early 1990s was critical to the early acceptance of neuropsychoanalysis, especially in New York.

Dr. Ostow had an interest in the relationship between psychoanalysis and neuroscience for virtually his entire career, and as early as the 1950s he produced some remarkable papers from a psychoanalytic perspective on the hippocampus and frontal lobes. He was also a founding member of the Advisory Board of this journal and was a great inspiration to many, supporting and encouraging a number of individuals and a wide range of neuropsychoanalytic endeavors. (An interview with Dr Ostow was published in the 2004:2 issue of Neuro-Psychoanalysis, pp. 209-216.)

These three friends of neuropsychoanalysis from New York will be missed.
