Severe Mental Illness: A Bridge between Neurochemistry and the Collective Unconscious

Published: Mar 11, 2016 by Psychological Perspectives
Authors: Hallie B. Durchslag

The article builds a relationship between neurochemistry and Jung's a priori construct of the collective unconscious through an exploration of the psychotic delusions present in severe mental illness and the psychopharmacological drugs used to treat them. The research offers evidence of the interplay between human biology and our psychological lives, and reinforces the continued relevance of Jungian theory amidst advances in the fields of neuroscience.
