Dear colleagues,

Toward the end of August while we enjoy the last few weeks of vacation, let the posts on the international psychoanalyst website keep you abreast of issues important to us a analysts. Whether it is heroism or the demise of education, identity formation or bullying, we will all find something of interestl

In addition to the total list, I have chosen a few which caught my eye as being of importance to me. My choices this week include the following:

1) Watching the flight thru the universe and the video of the next Mars Rover in Action suggested to me a flight thru the unconscious and the peeling of the layers of defenses – see what your think.

t4) A lovely story of how a “child learns that she matters” is a stunning example of identity formation/consolidation in adolescence of many children in families where the struggle to survive takes precedence over focus on psychological needs.

5) How the American University Was Killed – please read a pretty accurate statement that dovetails with what happened in medicine & I might add to us – it’s the “money” (makes the world go ’round)

It*s still far too early in the aftermath of the lethal game which James Holmes played out in an Aurora, Colorado multiplex to get more than a shadow of a read about his motivation. his narrative.

Few verified details have emerged about Holmes prior life, hardly enough to piece together a coherent pictures of the inner man, or the external circumstances which might have precipitated his murderous scenario.
At this point, I will only address some aspects of the Aurora massacre

XLIX. Analysts Living Longer: But, How do We Practice?

We have paired companion pieces, the first we run now and was published in 2001, written by an industrial engineer (retired). He documents the longer life span of (male) analysts. My guess, given the series out of London of elderly female analysts, we might find the same for women.

But, the follow-up piece we will run is on the nature of clinical practice as we age. This article by Eisenstein comes to us thanks to Jimmy Fisher in LA and his colleague Dr. Hoffs. Give us your thoughts.

by Morgan Kelly on the Princeton University website on August 17, 2012.
Princeton University researchers have found that the pulvinar, a mysterious region deep in the human brain, acts like a switchboard operator to make sure that separate areas of the brain are communicating about the same external information most important to our behavior at a given moment. The pulvinar uses electrical impulses to synchronize and allow more effective communication between brain cells in the visual cortex, which processes visual information. The researchers produced neural connection maps that show the pulvinar*s connection to these brain regions. In this scan, the pulvinar communicates with the occipital lobe (yellow) and the temporal lobe (red) individually, and with both (green). Image courtesy of Science/AAAS
