CAROPESO, Fátima. Hughlings Jackson’s influence on the Freudian theory on memory and the psychic apparatus. Mental [online]. 2008, vol.6, n.11, pp. x-x. ISSN 1679-4427.

In Freud’s text On Aphasia (1891), the influence of the British neurologist Hughlings Jackson’s ideas on the hypotheses formulated is very clear, and was acknowledged by Freud himself. In his later psychoanalytic texts, Freud no longer explicitly refers to Jackson. However, Jackson’s influence would appear to persist throughout the development of Freud’s meta-psychological work. The objective of this paper is to discuss some of Jackson’s ideas and try to show the impact on the elaboration of the Freudian theory of the psychic apparatus, providing the model used by Freud to conceive the source of such apparatus, as well as its normal and pathological workings.

Keywords : Freudian psychoanalysis; Hughlings Jackson; Psychic apparatus; Memory.
