NEUROPSA aims to create awareness in the field of neuropsychoanalysis and to do this a research must be undertaken, one that is meaningful to the course. For the association to succeed in this endeavor, there is a need to dedicate all efforts, minds, and resources ( both infrastructural and financial) to this work. The association also relys on knowledge from other disciplines and collaboration with people from various fields to cover multiple aspects of neuropsychoanalysis.

The Neuropsychoanlaysis Foundation values such efforts as such studies help bring scientists inch closer to their aims.

Goals of the foundation

The main aim is to promote research in a wide range of topics that are beneficial to the health of the human brain. Such issues include:

Neurological aspects

This study involves looking at points such as brain injury. The goal is to find ways in which scientists can manage such situations in a better manner to enable people lead healthy lives even in the event of such an incident.

Body of thought

NEUROPSA ensures that their research connects to a collection of belief in the line of neuroscience or neuropsychoanalysis. In this way, they guarantee that all the strides are in line with the aim of the foundation.

Case presentations

The research gets its support from various case studies to ensure that the theory applies to real life situations. They use psychoanalytic presentations which people can look at from the perspective of neuropsychoanalysis.


The Neuropsychoanalysis Foundation seeks to encourage research in the field of neuropsychoanalysis. They grant funds to researchers who are willing to dedicate the resources and their efforts to the investigation of topics which have aspects relating to neuroscience and psychoanalysis.

For a researcher to qualify for such a grant, they should show that their work will encompass aspects such as experimental research. The subjects of the study can be either human or animals. They should also have some research done on neurological clinic populations. Their investigations can also delve into the use of hypotheses.

Many researchers have benefited from such grants and have gone ahead to come up with commendable studies on neuropsychoanalysis. Each of these projects has aided us to get a better understanding of how our brains and minds function.

Alla Landa is a beneficiary of the foundation’s grants. She came up with Neural Mechanisms Underlying the Role of Interpersonal Emotions and Early Interpersonal Experience in Depression, having received our aid between 2014 and 2015. She delved into the importance of interpersonal relationships in the well-being of our mental health and discovered that the early relationships in our lives form a basis for our future interactions.

Studies conducted supported her hypotheses, and as such, her work was a success.

He came up with a study on When Brains Can’t Tell Hearts What to Feel: Inner Speech Breakdown and the Thinking Apparatus. The regulation of our emotions is an essential aspect of psychoanalysis, and it often relates to our egos. Our egos affect how we react to situations as well as how we defend ourselves against our instincts. His research created a bridge between our emotions and our brains and the significant ways in which they work.

Tons of other researchers have benefited from the funds, and it is quite easy to qualify for such aid.

Research labs

The foundation works with many labs dedicated to the field of neuropsychoanalysis and other related studies. You can get in touch with such institutions as they are always looking for enthusiastic people to get on board and help them out with new ideas. You can work with them on your research or join as a volunteer and help them work on their many projects. For those with already established labs, they are open to including you in the lists that they provide to students across the globe so be sure to get in touch with them.

The association has the Turnbull lab located in Bangor in Wales where researchers delve into varying aspects in human neuropsychology. Another great lab is the Université Libre de Bruxelles in Brussels, Belgium. They engage in clinical, empirical as well as theoretical research and they have a wide range of topics to study.

Other labs on the list include University of Cape Town, Mind, Brain Imaging and Neuroethics Research Unit, Ruhr-Universität Bochum and Social Neuroscience and Psychopathology (SNAP) Lab.

All these institutions study different aspects, and you will be sure to find one that explores what you like. There are hundreds of studies in progress as well as tons of completed reports, thanks to the strides taken in research over the past years. We hope that more people will take up an interest in neuropsychoanalysis to help us understand the workings of our brains and minds better in the years to come.
