Une « convergence forcée » ? Ethnographie d’une collaboration entre neurologie et psychiatrie dans un centre de neurosciences en France

Abstract : The rise of neurosciences has led certain neurologists and psychiatrists to consider the idea of the merger of their clinical specialties in a common neuropsychiatric discipline. Based on an ethnography of the use of a therapeutic technology for the treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders in a neuroscience center, this article explores the epistemological status of psychiatry, its methods and its objects. I describe the research and therapeutic organizations within which neurologists and psychiatrists collaborate and the forms of practices, perspectives of patients and disorder definitions that are shaped therein. The technology opens common spaces of practice for the actors. It also creates an opportunity for psychiatry and neurology to provide symmetrical questionings of clinical events. However, the neuropsychiatric project appears to be bounded by the irreducibility of the psychiatric patient and disorder to biological determinism.
