Adolescent mind and neurosciences


Adolescent Mind Transformation and Neurosciences. We have lately been observing a great development both in neurophysiologic and in neuropsychological research aiming to explain and integrate, on  behalf of some scientists, how scientific breakthroughs may be of utility  in confirming the basics of the psychoanalytic theory. Neurosciences have lately been defining the structure and functions of the brain systems processing the information about the relationship with the caregiver and underlying the subjectuality and intersubjectivity mechanisms.
