The Conscious Id: An Introduction to Neuropsychoanalysis

Dr. Mark Solms
presented by TICP

February 18, 2017 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Venue: Trinity College

Two aspects of the body are represented in the brain, and they are represented differently. The most important difference is that the brain regions for the two aspects of the body are associated with different aspects of consciousness. Very broadly speaking, the brainstem mechanisms derived from the autonomic body are associated with affective consciousness, and the cortical mechanisms derived from the sensorimotor body are associated with cognitive consciousness. Moreover, the upper brainstem is intrinsically conscious whereas the cortex is not; it derives its consciousness from the brainstem. These facts have substantial implications for psychoanalytic metapsychology because the upper brainstem (and associated limbic structures) performs the functions that Freud attributed to the id, while the cortex (and associated forebrain structures) performs the functions he attributed to the ego. This means that the id is the fount of consciousness and the ego is unconscious in itself. The basis for these conclusions, and some of their implications, are discussed here in a preliminary fashion.

Learning Objectives

1. Summarize at least two lines of neurobiological evidence for consciousness being primarily subcortical and affective.

2. Discuss at least two differences between traditional psychoanalytic and cognitive neuroscience accounts of unconscious processes.

3. Formulate new clinical hypotheses based on a neuropsychoanalytic model of repression.
