tially, the individual responses of components of the syndrome to treatment will add practical elucidation of the dissociations themselves.
The dissociative approach seizes upon these particular phenomena with which it can either "spot weld" a conceptual relationship or drive a wedge between two psychological domains. We have concentrated mainly on memory domains here, but there are no major areas of psychology, including that of awareness and consciousness, where comparable examples could not be discussed. Neuropsychology also takes the results of these conceptual operations and inferences to guide the further study of brain dysfunction, which it does in relation to anatomy, physiology, and neurochemistry, all of which bolster conceptualization at the neuronal level when these sources converge, which at the same time feeds back upon theory in the psychological domain, which guides further neuropsychological enquiry, and so forth. Neuropsychology is therefore at the crossroads between neurobiology, the neurological clinic, and experimental psychology. These, at last, are associative partners that one can embrace and from whom dissociations are not sought.
