Reviews and Endorsements

'Sigmund Freud never had any doubt that the discoveries he was making through psychoanalysis reflected aspects of brain functioning. However, in his day not enough was known about the nervous system to correlate clinical findings with neurophysiology. Today, we have the opposite problem - so much is known about the functioning of the nervous system that the very wealth of available material daunts the student of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy who might want to continue where Freud's "Project for a Scientific Psychology" left off.

'Mapping the Mind: The Intersection of Psychoanalysis and Neuroscience is therefore a benchmark in the field. Fred Levin, an accomplished psychoanalyst, has mastered the literature of the neurosciences and combined the two fields in a most interesting and readable manner. Dr Levin's book is an invaluable resource that will have an important place in the libraries of both theoreticians and practitioners.'
- Michael Franz Basch, MD, Professor Psychiatry, Rush Medical College Faculty, Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis

'Scientifically comprehensive and accurate, clinically sensitive and informed, this book is a "first". Dr Levin has proposed a broadly based integration of contemporary neuroscientific and psychoanalytic information that is both bold and sound. It should stimulate trail-blazing research.'
- Morton F Reiser, MD, Albert E. Kent Professor Emeriturs of Psychiatry, Yale University
