Psychophysiological Correlates of Mental Disorders

  • Yvon D. Lapierre

Abstract

Observed behaviour is the resultant of complex interactions of physiological and psychological variables. The observed phenomena are generally attributed to the psychological components of emotional and other factors directing motivation. These include perception, cognition, integration and action following the analysis of perceived stimuli. Subserving these psychological processes is the ongoing interaction between the activity of the autonomic (ANS) and central (CNS) nervous systems. The ascending reticular formation feeds into neural structures involved in both emotional and motivational factors of behaviour. The action of these systems are interwoven but can be dissociated partially to determine the correlates of arousal involving autonomic and cortical functions.
