Key Factors of Mental Disorders/Psychiatric Disorders

The causes of anxiety disorders, especially phobias, are not yet clear. Research shows that they may be related to genetic factors, personality factors, physiological factors, or psychological/social factors.

  • Genetic and environmental factors
  • It has long been recognized that genes are one of the main factors influencing normal and abnormal behavior in humans and animals. We have conducted familial aggregation studies for functional disorders such as schizophrenia, anorexia nervosa, and ADHD in children. The results show that these diseases are heritable, with genes passing the susceptibility from one generation to the next.

  • Infection
  • Infection can affect the central nervous system and produce mental disorders. For example, the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can enter the brain and cause cognitive behavior damage.
