Maggie Zellner

Intrinsic Connectivity and the Psychodynamic Brain

 In recent years, neuroscience has begun to identify a wide variety of brain networks – communities of neurons that are in active communication when we are doing, feeling, and thinking particular things (functional networks), and that are actively communicating on a consistent basis when we are not doing anything in particular (resting state networks).  As we understand more about these networks – which can amplify or inhibit activity in each other, be engaged out of awareness, and mediate key processes of relevance to psychoanalysis, including emotion, memory, drive, affect regulation, and awareness – our picture of the brain is becoming more dynamic, and therefore increasingly consonant with fundamental psychoanalytic models of the mind.  This talk will focus on some of the implications of findings about resting state networks for intrapsychic and interpersonal processes.
