Created in February 2008, the association holds two meetings a year: one “Study Day” and one Symposium where psychoanalysts, neuroscientists, and professors of medical studies participate in scientific exchanges. The SPI members are medical doctors, psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, and neuroscientists. Neuroscience courses are offered by the INSERM laboratory of la Pitié (which includes Lionel Naccache amongst its researchers).

The approach is radically different, relying on a new meta-model developed by J. B. Stora in numerous articles published in France. In relation to the neurosciences, we always refer to psycho-neuroendocrinology, psycho-neuroimmunology and neuropsychoanalysis interrelations.

On May 2010, the “Study Day” of the association was centered on the clinical practice of psychosomatics. Papers given included “The Experience and Questions Raised by a Psychoanalyst,” by Marc Dutkiewitcz, vice-chairman of SPI, and “Clinical Experience of a Medical Doctor,” by Dr.
