Description

For much of the last century, the so-called nature-nuture debate polarised opinion about the aetiology of mental illness. But the extreme biological or environmental positions adopted in the past are not supported by the recent evidence. Based on lectures presented as part of the third European Foundation for Psychiatry at the Maudsley (EFPM) meeting, this book will show that genes and environment are both important, and may correlate or interact with one another.
