Fifteen years have passed since the inaugural issue of the journal Neuropsychoanalysis was published in 1999; that same year, Eric Kandel published his landmark paper ‘A new intellectual framework for psychiatry’ in the American Journal of Psychiatry.  A few months later, the 1st International Neuropsychoanalysis Congress was held at the Royal College of Surgeons in London.

This summer, we will take stock of the progress we have made since 1999.  In this meeting, we will feature hot-off-the-press research and ongoing studies - both experimental and clinical - which bridge neuroscience and psychoanalysis.  We will consider the state of the art of our field, and our efforts to forge a new intellectual framework in the 21st century, not only for psychiatry, but for the mental sciences in general.

Preliminary program can be viewed or downloaded by clicking here.

VENUE: The Educational Day and Congress will be held at the Tishman Auditorium of The New School at 66 West 12th Street.  A post-congress discussion will take place at the New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute at 247 East 82nd Street on Sunday morning.

THE EDUCATIONAL DAY: It will start at 11:00 am, Thursday, July 24, and will offer two comprehensive talks:  Psychoanalysis for neuroscientists by Ariane Bazan and Neuropscience for psychoanalysts by Oliver Turnbull.  Click here for the abstracts.

THE CONGRESS:  Will kick off on Thursday afternoon.

RECEPTION: All congress participants are welcome at the opening reception on the evening of Thursday, July 24.

OPTIONAL DINNER CRUISE: Join us for a sunset buffet dinner on Friday evening while cruising the New York harbor - discuss the ideas of the meeting while viewing the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and more!  Not to be missed.  Congress participants are welcome to get tickets for partners, friends or family as well.
