Example text

In the first quarter of the first year socio-emotional experiences impact the experiencedependent maturation of the right amygdala; second and third quarters, the right anterior cingulate; and last quarter through the second half of the second year, the right orbitofrontal areas (Schore 2001a). In light of the principles that the right hemisphere is in a growth spurt at this time, that it, more than the later maturing left, is densely connected into the limbic system, and that it is centrally involved in processing faces, right lateralized limbic structures are specifically impacted by an array of more and more complex attachment experiences.

1997). , 2001). For the last 30 years psychoanalysis, the scientific study of the unconscious mind (Brenner 1980), has been interested in the unconscious processes mediated by the right brain, or as Ornstein (1997) calls it, ‘the right mind’ (Schore 1997c, 1999a, d). Recent experimental and clinical studies in developmental psychoanalysis and attachment theory have converged on the centrality of affective functions in the early years of human life, and this body of knowledge has been incorporated into clinical psychoanalysis, which is now ‘anchored in its scientific base in developmental psychology and in the biology of attachment and affects’ (Cooper 1987:83).

This self system, described in the psychoanalytic literature by Kohut’s self psychology (1971), as well as in the neuropsychoanalytic literature (Schore 1994), continues to develop more complexity, efficiency, and flexibility over the stages of the life span. The continuing ontogeny of this self-regulating and self-correcting dynamic system allows for an expansion of the boundaries of the emotion communicating self. The early right brain capacities of non-consciously processing socio-emotional information and bodily states are not only central to the origin of the self, but they are also required for the ongoing development of the self over the life span.
