Future progress will arise from a weaving of these strands into a whole cloth that does not yet exist. ABOUT 1910–1940: THE MEYERIAN SYNTHESIS OF A HOLISTIC PSYCHOBIOLOGY Adolf Meyer, from his base at Johns Hopkins, developed a well-organized “mental hygiene” approach to the treatment of the whole person. He recognized certain essentials of well-rounded psychiatric practice, centered on comprehensive life histories in which one could see the many factors contributing to psychiatric disorders. Each patient was seen as a unique individual who deserved to be treated in highly individualized ways.
It now seems increasingly clear that this may not be possible. We do need psychological and psychoanalytic concepts to wrap our minds around what is happening to people in emotional distress. And it is not just cognitive concepts that are needed but sufficiently well-resolved affective ones as well (Ostow, 2003). PERENNIAL PROBLEM: DISTINGUISHING AFFECTIVE AND COGNITIVE PROCESSES Let us now briefly return to the key psychiatric issues of affect and thought: Brain imaging has finally given us an objective glimmer of the brain emotional systems in humans (Chapter 2), and the general neurogeography is that of the limbic system that Paul MacLean (1990) first brought to our attention 50 years ago.
However, since we have been unable to unambiguously link most mental functions to brain functions and have only been able to pinpoint biological causes for a few rare genetic disorders, we have been left no other option than to categorize mental disorders on the basis of outward symptoms. Hopefully brain imaging and new chemical measures will soon become more prominent tools in diagnostics. Meanwhile, problems of diagnostic specificity and individual sensitivity remain to be resolved (Chapter 6).
