Book provides a new framework for making sense of mental illness
Despite evidence of mental illness tending to run in families, and billions of dollars to fuel the research efforts of many smart scientists to probe deep inside our DNA, not a single specific brain cause has been found for any of the major mental disorders, nor lab test or scan to help psychiatrists' diagnoses. "This is as astounding as it is disappointing," writes ASU professor Randy Nesse in his new book, 'Good Reasons for Bad Feelings: Insights from the Frontier of Evolutionary Psychiatry.'
