Psychoanalytical terms and definitions

Thursday, November 26th, 2009 by Clemens Muchitsch | General | No Comments

When working with psychoanalytical terms in our everyday scientific discussions we often come across different meanings in german and english litrature. To overcome this problem we started a list of psychoanalytical terms that we often use and tried to find translations and definitions. This “common ground” of psychoanalytical terms used by our team is not yet finished and will be constantly updated, so stay tuned for further post on this topic.

The table can be downloaded here: Psychoanalytical Terms and Definitions (Version 12 – 17.11.2009)

His two excellent guest lectures, Statistical Pattern Recognition and
Classical Artitficial Intelligence, will strengthen our groups
understanding of the mathematical underpinnings.

In the future our two research groups will collaborate on language,
especially its cognitive and emotional aspects. To this end, several
projects are being developped right now.

Ist das menschliche Gehirn auf dem Computer simulierbar? Mark Solms, der sich klar zu den Monisten zählt, schreibt: Das Gehirn ist kein Computer. Werden Millionen von Euro trotzdem für eine Utopie ausgegeben? Oder geht Sigmund Freuds Wunsch in Erfüllung, dass seine Modellierungen in der Naturwissenschaft nicht nur eine Basis für weitergehende Forschungsarbeiten finden, sondern seine Ergebnisse größtenteils belegt werden können?

Simulating the Mind – The Book to the ENF

Monday, October 27th, 2008 by Tobias Deutsch | Publications | No Comments

Simulating the Mind

Simulating the Mind

Simulating the Mind

Dietmar Dietrich, Georg Fodor, Gerhard Zucker, and Dietmar Bruckner, editors. Simulating the Mind – A Technical Neuropsychoanalytical Approach. Springer, Wien, 1 edition, 2009, ISBN: 978-3-211-09450-1.

Can psychoanalysis offer a new computer model? Can computer designers help psychoanalysts to understand their theory better? In contemporary publications human psyche is often related to neural networks. Why? The wiring in computers can also be related to application software. But does this really make sense?

Artificial Intelligence has tried to implement functions of human psyche. The reached achievements are remarkable; however, the goal to get a functional model of the mental apparatus was not reached. Was the selected direction incorrect?The editors are convinced: yes, and they try to give answers here. If one accepts that the brain is an information processing system, then one also has to accept that computer theories can be applied to the brain’s functions, the human mental apparatus.

The contributors of this book – Solms, Panksepp, Sloman and many others who are all experts in computer design, psychoanalysis and neurology are united in one goal: finding synergy in their interdisciplinary fields.
