Abstract

Most knowledge of the normal preschool oedipal feelings for a parent of the opposite sex come from reconstructive analysis of neurologically normal adults or from observation of phallic stage children. We have discovered in the symptoms of a severely brain-damaged adolescent evidence of a slightly different and interesting type. It seems to result from a biological unmasking of repressed material by post-encephalitic age regression.
