Summary

There are extraordinarily exciting periods in the history of science which bring new openings on the fringes of a particular field. We are in the midst of one of these periods: a large number of new discoveries regarding the functioning of the mind are published every day. These new findings in neuroscience are revealing unexpected aspects of neuroscience and pushing the entire field toward unexplored regions.

Besides the advancement in the understanding of psychic processes, neuroscience offers psychoanalysts the opportunity to enhance the dialogue with psychiatrists, neurologists, and other scientists, expanding the theoretical model. It is clear that the relationship between psychoanalysis, neuroscience, and neuropsychoanalysis is controversial. So, the dialogue between neuroscience and clinical findings is essential.

Building a bridge between neuropsychoanalysis and psychoanalysis through the clinical session is the main purpose of the book, which consists of two parts. The first part provides a theoretical view on dream, depression, addiction, panic and how to consider the study of a single case.
