A neuropsychoanalytic model of Freudian defenses: alpha synchronisation for primary repression and sensorimotor inhibition for secondary repression


Abstract : A distinction has to be made between two different defense logics. First, there is a more fundamental movement, which defends against the stimulus without its precise identification and which is thought to be the effect of the synchronisation of alpha waves. Research here involves ERP measurements (Bazan, 2017). Second, there is secondary repression, which needs precise and accurate identification of the stimulus and which is thought to be the effect of sensorimotor inhibition (Bazan, 2012). Research here is mostly done with rebound paradigms, e.g. Wegner et al. (2004). The specificity of the lab is to measure rebound both on the level of semantics and on the level of the signifier (phoneme groups).
