Can the psychodynamics of the mind be correlated with neurodynamic processes in the brain? The book revisits this important question - one that scientists and psychoanalysts have been asking for more than a century. The book revisits a question that scientists and psychoanalysts have been asking for more than a century. Can the psychodynamics of the mind be linked to neurodynamic processes in the brain? Freud envisioned that the separation betweenthe two approaches was a temporary limitation that future scientific progress would overcome; current scientific developments suggest he was right. Recent advances in social, affective and computationalneuroscience reveal richer and more dynamic brain-mind relations than those previously sketched by cognitive sciences. Technological and methodological innovations in neuroscience allow unprecedented insight into the neurobiological basis of topics such as empathy, embodiment and emotional conflict. As these domains have traditionally been the preserve of psychoanalysis and other fields within the humanities, rapprochement between disciplines seems more important than ever. Are we thus ready tolink some neuroscientific concepts to psychoanalytic ones? Can the two disciplines share a common conceptual framework despite their different epistemological perspectives? The book brings togetherinternationally renowned contributors from the fields of Psychoanalysis, Neuroscience and Neuro-psychoanalysis and aims to address these questions. The volume is organised in five clear sections, Motivation; Emotion; Conscious and Unconscious Processes; Cognitive Control; and Development of the Self. The volume gives the reader a strong flavour of how much has already been achieved between the fields and how much more lies ahead. The volume further reveals the intrinsicchallenges and tensions of this interdisciplinary endeavour and emphasises the need for a shared language and new emerging fields such as Psychodynamic Neuroscience.

From Cage to Couch, a true story of rescue is an emotional, sometimes hilarious rollercoaster ride of the laboratory test beagle we rescued from Spain, once known as Number 7, he became our Chief. Have you ever seen the footage of laboratory beagles released from their cages for the first time after years of being test subjects? Those tentative, un-natural steps said, "There's a world outside this cage and I want you to help me find it." The obstacles Chief had to overcome that a "regular" dog doesn't included learning to eat and drink from a bowl, how to wag his tail, how to play, and how to interact with his new pack, to name just a few. That first year he touched our lives - forever. This isn't just about Chief's journey, but mine as well; learning to relax and let go of the control panel, be open to learning life's lessons from a gangly "lab rat" beagle dog - now our beautiful 'Chief'

Discover What Rodents Know About the Good Life What can the common laboratory rat tell us about being human? According to behavioral neuroscientist Kelly Lambert, a whole lot. Her twenty- five-year career conducting experiments that involve rats has led her to a surprising conclusion: Through their adaptive strategies and good habits, these unassuming little animals can teach us some essential lessons about how we, as humans, can lead successful lives. From emotional resilience and a strong work ethic to effective parenting and staying healthy, the lab rat is an unlikely but powerful role model for us all. This is a surprising and engaging guided tour into the sophisticated mental, emotional, and behavioral worlds of these frequently maligned and often misunderstood little creatures.

Winner of the 2012 International Association for Relationship Research Book Award Can we predict how well -- or how poorly -- two strangers will get along? According to social psychologist William Ickes, the answer is yes. Drawing upon relevant research findings from his 30-year career, Ickes explains how initial interactions are shaped by gender, race, birth order, physical attractiveness, androgyny, the Big Five dimensions, shyness, and self-monitoring. Ickes's work offers unprecedented insights on the links between personality and social behavior that have not previously been compiled in a single source: how sibling relationships during childhood affect our interactions with opposite-sex strangers years later; why Latinos have a social advantage in initial interactions; how men react to the physical attractiveness of a female stranger in a relatively direct and obvious way while women react to the attractiveness of a male stranger in a more indirect and subtle way; and how personality similarity is related to satisfaction in married couples.

With the Bush administration in permanent crisis, a renowned Washington psychoanalyst updates his portrait of George W.'s public persona—and how it has damaged the presidency. Insightful and accessible, courageous and controversial, Bush on the Couch sheds startling new light on George W. Bush's psyche and its impact on the way he governs, tackling head-on the question few seem willing to ask: Is our president psychologically fit to run the country? With an eye for the subtleties of human behavior sharpened by thirty years of clinical practice, Dr. Justin A. Frank traces the development of Bush's character from childhood through his presidency, identifying and analyzing his patterns of thought, action, and communication. The result is a troubling portrait filled with important revelations about our nation's leader—including disturbing new insights into: How Bush reacted to the 2006 Democratic sweep in Congress with a new surge of troops into Iraq His telling habits and coping strategies—from his persistent mangling of English to his tendency to "go blank" in the midst of crisis The tearful public breakdown of his father, George H. W. Bush, and what it says about the former president's relationship to his prominent sons The debacle of Katrina—the moment when Bush's arrogance finally failed him With a new introduction and afterword, Bush on the Couch offers the most thorough and candid portrait to date of arguably the most psychologically damaged president since Nixon.

From the bestselling author of Love's Executioner and When Nietzsche Wept comes a provocative exploration of the unusual relationships three therapists form with their patients. Seymour is a therapist of the old school who blurs the boundary of sexual propriety with one of his clients. Marshal, who is haunted by his own obsessive-compulsive behaviors, is troubled by the role money plays in his dealings with his patients. Finally, there is Ernest Lash. Driven by his sincere desire to help and his faith in psychoanalysis, he invents a radically new approach to therapy -- a totally open and honest relationship with a patient that threatens to have devastating results. Exposing the many lies that are told on and off the psychoanalyst's couch, Lying on the Couch gives readers a tantalizing, almost illicit, glimpse at what their therapists might really be thinking during their sessions. Fascinating, engrossing and relentlessly intelligent, it ultimately moves readers with a denouement of surprising humanity and redemptive faith.

Blink twice for help... Something strange has gripped the residents of Douglas County, Oregon. One by one several people and even whole families have literally fallen down in what looks like a coma. It's horrifying for those untouched by the disease to see their loved ones fall beside them mid-word without any warning and without any discernible reason,. It's much more terrifying for the victims, however, than anyone realizes because the victims aren't in a coma. They are fully conscious, aware of their surroundings, and able to do only two things on their ownbreathe and blink. They have Locked In Syndrome, a kind of living death in which they can see, hear, taste and feel, but cannot even twitch their nose. Senior Public Health Nurse Nancy Brandauer has the task of finding out what happened to these people and what will bring them out of it before their condition becomes irreversible. Her quest is motivated by something much deeper than her commitment to her profession, great though that is. Her motivation springs from the very core of her soul because her only daughter is one of the victims. Into the midst of this emotional whirl, the Centers for Disease Control drops someone to "help." Her first love, Zachary Keller, a man from whom the parting was not sweet, but bitter, unresolved, and for which Nancy feels a certain guilt. Happily married now for many years, she draws strength from her husband Ed, even as he draws strength from her. Their bond is as unassailable as any couple's can be, but it faces a rapid succession of challenges that will test its temper as nothing has before. "Locked In" twists and turns, going where you least expect it. Just when you think you've rounded the last turn and worked everything out, it tosses you another surpriseright up to the very last page.
