The most progressive example of this trend is the group of interpersonal neurobiologists around Dan Siegel, Allan Schore, Alan Fogel, and many others, nearly all of whom come from a psychoanalytic background.

There Is No Left Brain/Right Brain

There Is No Left Brain/Right Brain | Neuropsychology | Scoop.it

You are hardly alone if you believe that humanity is divided into two great camps: the left-brain and the right-brain thinkers — those who are logical and analytical vs. those who are intuitive and creative. It seems to be natural law. Except it isn’t.

Wow!  This is news to me!  There is no Left Brain/Right Brain divide.

 

For as long as I can remember, human beings were either left-brain thinkers (rational and analytical) or right-brain thinkers (intuitive and creative).  Come to find out, that's not the case at all, and apparently scientists have known this for a very long time.

 

While the "left and right halves of the brain do function in some different ways, these differences are more subtle than is popularly believed."  In addition, the halves of the brain do not work in an isolated way.  Instead they work together as a whole system.  Finally, "people don't preferentially use one side or the other."

 

A brain myth busted!

Neurobehavioral Development of Young Children: Neuroscience and Early Trauma - Allan Schore

Neurobehavioral Development of Young Children: Neuroscience and Early Trauma - Allan Schore | Neuropsychology | Scoop.it

A large body of experimental and clinical data now indicates that early trauma specifically impacts the later capacities of the right brain and its connections into the limbic and autonomic nervous system to implicitly regulate an array of affective and motivational states, including pain states.

 

In this presentation Dr. Schore describes the mechanisms by which overwhelming experiences impact the developing brain and mind, including the characterological use of the bottom-line defense of dissociation.
