Abstract

Ordinary behaviour that is not the result of a brain disease has a complex relationship to biological factors. It may be influenced by them, but is not caused by them. In contrast, brain diseases can directly cause certain behaviours, or patterns of behaviour. Mental disorders are best thought of as variants of ordinary behaviour, not as brain diseases.
