In their conference, they will discuss how the mechanisms of neuronal plasticity may be at the basis, not only of learning and memory, but also of the establishment of the unconscious as explored by the psychoanalytical theory. They will further explore the mind-body connection in a way that opens novel perspectives to understand the dialogue between bodily states and neuronal traces of experience, which opens to personal freedom, identity and change.
