Between Brain and Mind?

About

Can psychoanalysis help us to link up neuroscience's knowledge of the brain with the current models of the mind? The neuroscientist's view of mental function can be too simple, and the psychoanalyst's model of the brain too naà ¯ve. Can the two models ever be conjoined? Meanwhile, what are the implications for us all of living in the uncharted middle ground? Eminent psychoanalyst Dr Ron Britton examines the danger and desirability of bringing these two models together, in discussion with Peter Hobson, psychoanalyst and Professor of Developmental Psychopathology at University College London.
