    Neuroscience and Psychoanalysis

    Neuroscience and Psychoanalysis

    Richard Brown( Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, Dalhousie University) and Mark Solms (Chair of Neuropsychology, University of Cape Town) give the fourth talk in the Unconscious Memory series. Richard Brown - Multiple Memory Systems in the Brain: Integrating Conscious and Unconscious Memory Pathways
    Multiple memory systems include both explicit (Conscious) and implicit (Unconscious) memory networks. What is the neural basis of these memory systems and how are they related? What happens in neurodegenerative diseases? Do all memory systems fail or do some survive?
    Mark Solms- A Neuropsychoanalytical Perspective on Consciousness and the Unconscious
    The primary state of consciousness is affective, not perceptual. Perception is unconscious in itself and is only rendered conscious by dint of its (affective) salience. The implications of this framework for unconscious memory will be outlined, with reference to both cognitive and Freudian notions of the unconscious.
