Lecture by Mark Solms, University of Cape Town

The Department of Psychology, Centre for Psychoanalysis and Psykoanalytisk Debat invites to a lecture by

Professor Mark Solms, Department of Psychology,

University of Cape Town, South Africa:

‘Clinical Implications of Neuropsychoanalysis’ 

In his talk, Professor Mark Solms will describe the basic brain mechanisms that are involved in psychopathology, and, based on this, he will outline and explain the brain mechanisms of common psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacological treatments. In other words, Mark Solms will explain how and why psychotherapy works, and how it differs (neurologically) from drug therapy. Lastly he will address the question: how well do these treatments work and what does this mean for psychoanalysis?
