CHAPTER SIXTEEN: Bridging neurobiology, cognitive science and psychoanalysis: Recent contributions to theories of therapeutic action

Slice ePub May 23, 2014

Bridging neurobiology, cognitive
science and psychoanalysis:
Recent contributions to theories
of therapeutic action

Sandra G. Hershberg, M.D.

Chapters twelve, thirteen, fourteen and fifteen explore the ways in which knowledge and research about the implicit and explicit domains, in the context of relational experience, reconfigures concepts of memory, learning and a sense of self in the developing brain and, furthermore, contributes to a theory of mind. These findings, particularly in the areas of attachment, infant observation, and neuroscience, emphasize the primacy of relational experience and inform our notions of how psychoanalysis leads to change.

In an effort to achieve a sense of balance between coherence and chaos, Schore, Bucci, Chefetz, and Fosshage, have provided footholds of clarity and understanding as we consider various aspects of the implicit and explicit domains. Schore (1994, 2003a, 2003b, 2010), in his painstaking and creative endeavour to integrate the implicit self, psychoanalysis and neuroscience, focuses on the questions: Where in the brain do we locate the implicit self, that aspect of ourselves which is responsive to non-verbal expressions of emotions, the markers of attachment and emotional connection, and the seat of affect regulation, originally configured between infant and car-egiver? What are the implications of these findings, from his perspective, for the therapeutic process?

Sport in Movies

From Johnny Weissmüller to Vinnie Jones (1996)

This month Kevin Costner demonstrates his formidable swing as an ageing golf pro in Tin Cup, a movie directed and co-scripted by

Ron Shelton, onetime minor league baseball player. Next month in the London Film Festival, the poet, martial artist and Manchester

United hero Eric Cantona makes a creditable movie debut as a womanising star three-quarter for Condom Rugby Club in Le

Bonheur est dans le pré; Vinnie Jones is soon to be seen as a debt collector in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels; and the French tennis star Yannick Noah will make his film debut next year in

Hannibal Tartarin’s Le Petit fils.

There’s nothing odd here. For a century there has been a symbiotic relationship between the cinema and professional sport. The first people to be recognised on film and to be paid for their appearance were boxers in the 1890s, and there have been more movies about boxing than any other sport. From Chaplin, Keaton and

Harold Lloyd onwards, virtually every screen comedian has entered the ring, and at every major world championship bout movie stars have had ringside seats. Real-life boxers have been courted by the movies. Ex-champions Tami Mauriello and Tony Galento lend authentic muscle to the crooked union organiser Johnny Friendly in On the Waterfront; Jake La Motta tends the bar where Paul

The Arrival

Source: What is EPUB 3?
Slice ePub May 27, 2014

And that brings us to the big question: who is going to support EPUB 3 and when? Because its community driven, and because it has a very large community, people have already begun experimenting, even though the specification isnt yet a formal recommendation. Apple iBooks, for example, already has early support for the overlays feature of EPUB 3, and read-along childrens books are already available.

With EPUB 3 now in the final stages of the approval process, it will receive recommendation status in fall 2011. In that light, its not a stretch to predict that EPUB 3 reading systems will be on shelvesand upgrades to your current systems availableby early 2012 (if not sooner). Many industry heavyweightslike Apple, Sony, Google and Adobehave been involved in the specification development, and all are expected to begin working on implementations once the finished specification is available to develop against.

The specification has also been crafted with backward compatibility of content in mind. Duplicating content for EPUB 2 and 3 readers is not anything anyone wants to do, so to that end, EPUB 3 has maintained minimal compatibility with EPUB 2 reading systems to ensure that anyone using an older system to read a new book is still (reasonably) able to do so. Thats not to suggest that all EPUB 3s will render seamlessly on older readers (in particular if you are taking heavy advantage of all the new features EPUB 3 has to offer), but if your EPUB 3 is a simple novelwith just chapters and paragraphs and using basic CSS stylingit should render equally well on an EPUB 2 reader as on a 3.
