(p.1) Introduction
Localization and Its Discontents

Katja Guenther

University of Chicago Press

The Introduction draws the parallels between certain trends in modern neuroscience and developments in late nineteenth-century neuropsychiatry. Both are structured by the aporetic relationship between the localization of function and a form of connectivity. It suggests that a history of this tradition of neuropsychiatry, and in particular its grappling with the aporetic relationship between localization and connectivity, helps us gain a new understanding of the interconnected histories of psychoanalysis and the neuro disciplines and can refigure our understanding of modern neuroscience.

Keywords:   neuroscience, neuroimaging, new phrenology, localization and its discontents, connectome
