Trends in MDI research have moved beyond the testing of amine hypotheses to enrich the clinical descriptive, diagnostic, genetic, endocrinologic and neurophysiologic understanding of the syndromes of MDI.

These developments represent the most substantial contributions of a biomedical approach to psychiatry to date, and support the clinical and scientific value of the approach (93 pgs).
