DAVID, Mário  e  CAEIRO, Lara. The birth and development of neuro-psychoanalysis. Vínculo [online]. 2020, vol.17, n.1, pp. 01-24. ISSN 1806-2490.

Neuro-Psychoanalysis is an area of conceptual and epistemological research focused on the reevaluation of hypotheses proposed by the psychoanalytic model of Mind (Psyché) facing recent and new scientific data emerging from the investigations over different Brain's areas and activities, which allows a development and clarification of new neuro-dynamic models related to both conscious and unconscious mental activity. The authors reviewed the historical, philosophical and scientific circumstances behind the birth of this movement of dialogue between Psychoanalysis and Modern Neurosciences, the International Society for Neuro-Psychoanalysis, whose historical foundations are embodied in the work and life of Sigmund Freud, who started his professional life as a researcher in medical histology laboratories and became interested in the study of the central nervous system and later on began his clinical practice in Neurology. Only at the decade of the 50s, the first precursor initiatives over modern neuroscientific research have taken place and only at the 80s emerge several sources of scientific data from different areas of neurological research which allowed the first possibilities for possible correlations and correspondences between psychological and psychoanalytic terms with certain areas and neurophysiological circuits of the Brain, thus enabling the reopening of a dialogue desired by Freud, in his monograph entitled: "Project for a Scientific Psychology" from 1895, between the psychoanalytic model of Mind and new neurobiological and neuroscientific models of the Brain.
