Location – 41 E 11th Street; 4th Floor; NYC, 10003
“. . . (S)omething is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings. All the greatest people ever lived have been telling us that for five thousand years and yet you'd be surprised how people are always losing hold of it” (Thornton Wilder)
In this course, we will examine some clinical cases, their origins and development, their neural processes, brain-mind and neuro-social interactions.
We will look into important for any psychotherapist and psychoanalyst processes of neuroplasticity and neurointegration as the main processes, which drive one’s states of health and disease. We will look into connections of human brain’s anatomy (which is very specific to our species) with the wholesome and creative functioning of the mind (which differs from one individual to another).
This course will include previously scheduled workshop: How the Brain Tricks the Mind: Alien hand syndrome, Tourette’s, Capgras, Cotard Syndromes, and many more.
No prerequisites for this course, just an open mind.
Fee: $200. Students and retired practitioners: $100/ full course.

The intention [of this project] is to furnish a psychology that shall be a natural science. ~ S. Freud, 1895, Project for a Scientific Psychology
I am tormented by two aims: to examine what shape the theory of mental functioning takes if one introduces quantitative consideration, a sort of economics of nerve forces; and, second, to peel off from psychopathology a gain for normal psychology. ~ S. Freud, 1895, Letter to W. Fliess
He who has eyes to see and ears to hear becomes convinced that mortals can keep no secret. If their lips are silent, they gossip with their fingertips; betrayal forces itself through every pore. ~ S. Freud, 1905, The Case of Hysteria.
The brain is the organ of destiny. It holds within its humming mechanism secrets that will determine the future of the human race. ~ Wilder Penfield-
Significance of understanding of neurobiology for those who dedicate their professional life to psychoanalysis was recognized by neurologist/ neuropathologist Sigmund Freud at the very birth of this profession. One can be fascinated how (without PET scans and fMRIs) he could picture the structure of the mind, while having not very sophisticated fish brains at hand.
The theory of mind and brain mapping started by Freud evolved into different merging areas of interest, such as social neurology, evolutionary neuroscience, interpersonal neuroscience, mindfulness, neuropsychoanalysis, etc., etc.
In this course, we will become acquainted with brain-mind connections, with neural processes involved in memory, emotions, and social interactions. We will look into neural and neurophysiological processes of attachment, trauma, plasticity, and integration (“What fires together – wires together!”).
We will look into connections of human brain’s anatomy (which is very specific to our species) with the wholesome and creative functioning of the mind (which differs from one individual to another).
