Disorder

We suggest that several major mental disorders can be understood as maladaptation of mechanisms controlling stability and transition. Understanding the transitions between episodes and the processes that cause healthy or disordered states to persist is the key to explaining and diagnosing such disorders. Here, we use key mental disorders to investigate what happens when the mechanisms as analyzed in the other Key Areas fail.
