  • About Psychotherapy

    The goal of this site was to explain psychotherapy in clear and accessible language -- to demystify the whole subject, without trivializing it. In reading through these pages, you can learn about depression, phobias, anxiety, obsession, attention deficit, learning disability, and a host of other related issues; there are also sections on behavior therapy, children and adolescents, couples, biofeedback, and many more. Primarily, though, you will come away understanding psychotherapy: What it is, how it works, why go, why stop (and when), and what should and should not happen there.

  • Connectionist Models of Mental Disorder

    Recent connectionist and "neural network" models of behavior, information processing patterns, and brain activity present in people with cognitive, affective, brain, and behavioral disorders are reviewed on this web site. Ways that assumptions regarding normal and disordered behavior may be represented in connectionist models are discussed for features of various disorders. Similarities and differences between the models and criteria for their evaluation are presented, and suggestions for inclusion of information which may help to make these models more directly comparable in the future are considered.
