An evolutionary framework for mental disorders: Integrating adaptationist and evolutionary genetic models
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (4):429-441 (2006)
|Abstract||This response (a) integrates non-equilibrium evolutionary genetic models, such as coevolutionary arms-races and recent selective sweeps, into a framework for understanding common, harmful, heritable mental disorders; (b) discusses the forms of ancestral neutrality or balancing selection that may explain some portion of mental disorder risk; and (c) emphasizes that normally functioning psychological adaptations work against a backdrop of mutational and environmental noise.
