Further studies with neurosurgeon Wilder Penfield enabled Milner to expand her study of memory and learning in patients following brain surgery. She noticed that the patient could still learn new tasks but could not transfer them to long-term memory. In this way, the hippocampus was identified as the site required for the transfer of short-term memory to long-term memory where Hebbian learning takes place.
Memorabilia from the th Birthday Symposium for Dr.
Brenda Milner. Kathleen Dickson, Author provided In , at the age of 95, Milner won the Norwegian Kavli Prize in neuroscience for her discovery of the importance of the hippocampus to memory.
O'Keefe also received the Nobel Prize in medicine. Kandel produced conclusive evidence that memory was a consequence of the repeated signalling to a neuron responding to a learning task that would trigger the production of ribonucleic acid RNA. The end result was new protein expression leading to increases in synaptic connections.
The next leap forward occurred at McGill when molecular biologist Nahum Sonenberg uncovered a key mechanism that regulates memory formation in the hippocampus, namely, the protein synthesis initiation factor.
A memory pill? The work of Sonenberg shook the world of scientists working on how protein synthesis was controlled. One of the most prominent in the field, molecular biologist Peter Walter was contacted by Sonenberg.
Together, they identified a chemical compound they named ISRIB that would affect the same protein synthesis initiation factor whose importance was discovered by Sonenberg. The results were spectacular, with an amazing improvement of memory in mice after administration of ISRIB.
Walter has now extended this to include memory restoration in mice recovering from brain trauma. Curiously, neuropsychoanalysis has been developed by scientists of historically marginalized countries. In Freud times, psychoanalysis also had a marginal status, it was almost constrained to European Jews.
Yet, neuropsychoanalysis represents a return to the neurologist Freud, the pioneer of the current neuroscience. As Faust, psychoanalysis is in debt with its Mephisto.
Even being distant from science over the last years, today, with neuroscience, psychoanalysis, such as Mephisto, enlightens the historic debt with the current disciples of Freud, our Faust.
Neuropsychoanalysis allows for psychoanalysis coming to terms with science. Neuropsychoanalysis has been the topic of many discussions lately, however, little is known about this new interdisciplinary proposal. In the following lines we will briefly outline the origin of neuropsychoanalysis while a research method and interdisciplinary movement.
Then, we will try to analyze the objectives proposed by this new knowledge area and make some comments and suggestions, considering that neuropsychoanalysis could be a new paradigm for the 21st century psychoanalysis. In , Eric Kandel, a prominent neuroscientist, published the article entitled Biology and the future of psychoanalysis: a new intellectual framework for Psychiatry,1 in which he points out some suggestions for psychoanalysis in the 21st century.
Among other ideas, Kandel proposed an approximation between psychoanalysis and neuroscience, with the objective of developing new studies and theories in the field of psychoanalysis. According to this author, neuroscience could provide more concrete empirical and conceptual basis to psychoanalysis.
Memory and the hippocampus
Yet, in , the 1st International Congress of Neuropsychoanalysis took place in London, when the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society was founded. Mark Solms, president of the Society, has published some works since the late s, in which he presents a new method of research in neuroscience.
It consists of an adaptation of the traditional neuropsychological method developed by Luria for the study of the brain activity linked to emotional phenomena, which psychoanalysis has been investigating for over a century.
Such modification in the axis of investigation in neuroscience - from cognitive processes to emotional phenomena - has been more frequently lately, fostered by the development of highly specialized devices for the precise mapping of the brain activity, as it is the case of PET-Scan and the functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging fMRI. The neuropsychoanalytic method introduced by Solms is intended to gather observations made during psychoanalysis sessions with patients who have brain lesions found through modern technology of brain mapping.
His goal was to find out which areas of the brain correspond to the psychic phenomena that Freud described during his works with psychoanalysis. As an example of findings obtained with the neuropsychoanalytical method, we cite the first experiences of V. Ramachandran with patients that had lesions in the right brain hemisphere, carriers of a disorder known as "anosognosia". These patients are unable to recognize a limb paralysis, a symptom named "negligence".
After dropping a small amount of cold water within the left ear of some of his patients, Ramachandran observed that negligence disappeared completely and reappeared after some minutes.
Such stimulation may be interpreted as "a temporary and artificial correction of the attention unbalance between both hemispheres"2 p. The outcomes of such an experiment help find out that the phenomenon of repression, as well as defense mechanisms described in the psychoanalytic literature, are mediated by the left brain hemisphere. It is then proved that the neuropsychoanalytic method seems to be effective in the localization of brain areas that correspond to unconscious phenomena that have some influence in the psychic life of individuals.
Besides, such method fills the blank observed by Kandel1 in what concerns the psychoanalysis necessity for an empirical base. However, we must now find how the neuropsychoanalytic method can contribute to advances in the conceptual knowledge of unconscious processes. In this sense, the method developed by Solms is not the only one that can provide the conceptual foundations to psychoanalysis, although it is the first to establish the possibility of experimental scientific investigation for such concepts.

Psychoanalysis, through the method of free association and its own techniques has been developing a vast theoretical framework during more than one century. It is evident that neuroscience,3 through the neuropsychoanalytic method, can not validate all psychoanalytic concepts; however, we should not censure the effort that neuropsychoanalysis followers have made to increment research on the psychoanalysis field.
Even if we can not deny the pioneer initiative of the neuropsychoanalytic method, we should ask to what extent the method of neuropsychoanalysis can contribute to the psychoanalytic theory and to psychotherapy.Language and Cognitive Processes, 21 5 , Brenda Milner.
Neurocase, 10, Each psychoanalyst mentioned above developed new theories and techniques in their own fields of work. Psychiatry focuses on affective , behavioral, cognitive , and perceptual disorders. Svitlana Pavliuk Learning and memory are a consequence of how our brain cells neurons communicate with each other. Known as long-term potentiation LTP , the more often a learning task is repeated, the more often transmission continues and the stronger a memory circuit becomes.
In the first half of the 19th century, Jean Pierre Flourens pioneered the experimental method of carrying out localized lesions of the brain in living animals describing their effects on motricity, sensibility and behavior.
