There were three landmarks: first, my research in psychopharmacology thanks to the leadership of Heinz Lehmann and Thomas Ban (1960s); second, my intense work in psychosomatics and psychoanalysis with Eric Wittkower; and finally, my interest in the analysis of dreams and their relationship to symptom formation led me to the study of the neurophysiology of sleep and dreaming under Roger Broughton in Ottawa, Dudley Dinner at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and Jacques Montplaisir at the University of Montreal.
Since my return to Argentina in 1995, I have been, up to a couple of years ago, an active member of the Argentinian College of Neuropsychopharmacology, a Thesis supervisor of the Faculty of Psychology and Medicine, a Director of the Center for Sleep Medicine of the Sanatorium Parque and an active member and Supervisor of the Argentine Institute Pierre Marty of Psychosomatic Medicine.
