Neuropsychoanalysis – How can we practice such a transdisciplinary enterprise?

The recent emergence of neuropsychoanalysis raises several questions that pertain to different contexts — methodological, epistemological, and empirical. I present an outline of a systematic transdisciplinary methodological strategy, with an overview of how we have practiced this in our research endeavors by developing neuropsychodynamic hypotheses about how self and objects are constituted and, at the same time, differentiated in the brain. The transdisciplinary methodology of neuropsychoanalysis can also productively address psychiatric disturbances like depression and schizophrenia, where these self- and object-related processes are disturbed in a paradigmatic way.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of the American Psychoanalytic Association and the New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. The American Psychoanalytic Association is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The American Psychoanalytic Association designates this Live Activity for a maximum of [2] AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
