We have previously described neurotic psychopathology and psychoanalytic working-through by an associative memory mechanism, based on a neural network. Memory was initially modelled by a Boltzmann machine (BM). We simulated known microscopic mechanisms that control synaptic properties and showed that the network self-organizes to a hierarchical, clustered structure. Some properties of the complex networks which result from this self-organization indicate that a generalization of the BM may be
