Comorbidity: Cognition and biology count!

Orly Rubinsten, Avishai Henik

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/Debate


We agree with Cramer et al. that pure cases of behavioral disorders with no symptom overlaps are rare. However, we argue that disorders do exist and the network idea is limited and limiting. Networks of symptoms are observed mainly at behavioral levels. The core deficit is commonly at the cognitive or brain levels, and there the story is completely different.
