CASTELLANOS, SERGIO. Reflections on the Relationship between Neuroscience and Psychoanalysis. Univ. Psychol. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.3, pp. 729-735. ISSN 1657-9267.
Psychoanalysis was consolidated as a science at a time where the advantages of neuroscience didn't allowed giving satisfactory explications to certain psychological phenomena. This explains that even though roads travel by Freud began at medicine and neurophysiologic investigations, these disciplines were not effective enough to understand phenomena as hysteria. Some of the significant elements taken by Freud from medicine and neurology are presented. The concept of resistance as an element of interference to gain deeper psychoanalytic knowledge is also discussed, and its relation to our preference for the post modern rush of producing novel knowledge, even superficial in some cases, or to propose new disciplines, in order to avoid depth in research and knowledge into already existing disciplines that still have a lot of internal development possibilities.
