Furthermore, they provide novel evidence pointing to genetic and neurochemical factors as important elements determining individual diversity in neurodynamical patterns, and susceptibility to mental disease. Thus the authors present a combined neurodynamic, cognitive, neurochemical and genetic perspective that is rarely attempted in reviews on this topic. To do so they focus and develop a number of specific exemplary issues avoiding a too general review perspective so as to provide an in-depth view into the mechanisms involved.
