In the past few decades, we have accumulated an impressive amount of knowledge regarding the neural basis of the mind. One of the most important sources of this knowledge has been the in-depth study of individuals with focal brain damage and other neurological disorders. This book offers a unique perspective, in that it uses a combination of neuropsychology and psychoanalytic knowledge from diverse schools (Freudian, Kleinian, Lacanian, Relational, etc.), to explore how damage to specific areas of the brain can change the mind.

Twenty years after the publication of Clinical Studies in Neuro-Psychoanalysis, this book continues the pioneering work of Mark Solms and Karen Kaplan-Solms, bringing together clinicians and researchers from all over the world to report key developments in the field. They present a rich set of new case studies, from a diverse range of brain injuries, neuropsychological impairments and even degenerative and paediatric pathologies.

This volume will be of immense value to those working with neurological populations that want to incorporate psychoanalytic ideas in case formulations, as well as for those who want to introduce themselves in the neurological basis of psychoanalytic models of the mind and the broader psychoanalytic community.

Reviews and Endorsements

"Understanding the biological underpinnings of human mental functioning as seen through the lens of psychoanalytic observations was, of course, an initial goal of Sigmund Freud. This challenging, but intriguing task has been the focus of neuropsychoanlaysis. This updated edited text by Salas, Turnbull and Solms summarizes in a very interesting manner the evolution of this field of study over the last twenty years. In addition, it provides several useful clinical examples of how psychological work with brain dysfunctional individuals have utilized psychodynamic insights. It is a book that both informs and inspires and is especially helpful in understanding the subjective experiences of some brain dysfunctional individuals." - George P. Prigatano, Ph.D., Barrow Neurological Institute.

"This book is a must-read for anyone interested in, or working with, the mysteries of human minds. You will find new hypotheses, discussions, suggestions and examples of clinical cases from the interdisciplinary work of neuropsychoanalysis. This is a young but very important and innovative field proposing a new vision for studying and clinically approaching mental functions. A pleasure to read, it poses engaging, exciting and innovative questions." - Cristina M. Alberini, Professor of Neuroscience, New York University.
