Empirical modeling of psychopathology identifies coherent spectra. These spectra transcend constructs traditionally conceptualized as “personality” vs. “psychopathology.” Progress in delineating biological—including genetic—correlates involves a process of interweaving biological indicators with the empirically-derived phenotypic structure of psychopathology.

Free and open to the public. This is the final presentation for this academic year. Information about next year’s schedule will be available in August. If you would like to convey suggestions about future speakers, contact Paul S. Appelbaum, MD, Director, Center for Research on Ethical/Legal/Social Implications of Psychiatric, Neurologic & Behavioral Genetics, Department of Psychiatry, at 646-774-8630 or [email protected].
