When the first edition of Clinical studies in Neuro-Psychoanalysis was published in 2000, it was hailed as a turning point in psychoanalytic research. It is now relied on as a model for the integration of neuroscience and psychoanalysis. It won the NAAP's Gradiva Award for Best Book of the Year 2000 (Science Category) and Mark Solms received the International Psychiatrist Award 2001 at the American Psychiatric Association's annual meeting. The authors have added a glossary of key terms of this edition to aid their introduction to depth neuropsychology.

'Freud, in his 1895 Project for a Scientific Psychology, attempted to join the emerging discipline of psychoanalysis with the neuroscience of his time. But that was a hundred years ago, when the neuron had only just been described, and Freud was forced - through lack of pertinent knowledge - to abandon his project. We have had to wait many decades before the sort of data which Freud needed finally became available. Now, these many years later, contemporary neuroscience allows for the resumption of the search for correlations between these two disciplines. The Drs Solms are uniquely qualified for his task, having trained in both psychoanalysis and the neurosciences, and the work described in this volume ushers in a new era for our field.'
- Arnold Z. Pfeffer, from his Foreword

Reviews and Endorsements

'In this one volume the Solms have expanded the frontiers of psychoanalysis, by bringing new meaning to a host of topics that in the past seemed to have little to do with psychoanalytic theory. It is difficult to imagine whether this volume will be of greater interest to psychoanalysts or neuroscientists. Either group will find this book fascinating and will wonder how the conceptual connections which seem so natural in the hands of the Solms, have eluded other investigators and theorists."

Steven J. Ellman, PhD

'Mark and Karen Solms are each outstanding scientists in their own right who have in a short period of time moved the field of psychoanalysis forward by integrating data from the laboratory and the consulting room. They have brought to this tasks an in-depth knowledge of neuropsychology, neurobiology, and psychoanalysis. Their work is in the best spirit of E.O. Wilson's concept of consilience (the bringing together of different disciplines), wise, and a pleasure to read.'
- Arnold Richards, MD
