Biology Mental Disorders

Ratings: (0)|Views: 168|Likes:
Published by Thomas Rodgers
Mental Disorders presents a summary of research into the biological
factors associated with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, obsessivecompulsive
disorder, and panic disorder. The report also discusses support for this research
and the social context in which it moves forward. OTA concludes that, indeed, there have been
important advances in understanding the biology of these disorders, and that rich opportunities
for further research exist. While we know that these mental disorders cannot be understood
in biological terms alone-psychological and social factors are important for a complete
picture of mental disorders and their treatment-we conclude that further biological research
will significantly improve our understanding and treatment of these conditions. Mindful of the
advances and continued opportunities in research, the report provides policy options for action
by the U.S. Congress in three areas: support for research, implications of research findings,
and the dissemination of new information.
