Abstract :

Psychoanalysis and neurobiology can be brought together to successfully treat mental illness. Although the psychoanalytic and neurobiologic views of human mental functions are very different, they complement each other to create a holistic treatment of mental illness. Patients need the multimodal evaluation from psychoanalysis' subjective and personal profiles and neurobiology's systematic and disease-model data. Moreover, psychopharmacology and psychotherapy are important therapeutic treatments for mental disorders with obscure biological abnormality.
