Toward an Integrated Process Model of Psychosis
February 15, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Abstract: Dr. Cornelius explores the hypothesis that psychosis is as an information processing problem centered around the breakdown of neurologic processes that convert sensory input into symbolic memory. In this exploration he endeavors to demonstrate the benefit of the ongoing integration of neuroscience, psychoanalysis and other fields.
