Yale University psychologist Avram Holmes and Lauren Patrick studied the research titled "myth of optimality in clinical neuroscience"Trends in Cognitive SciencesWe announced above. Researchers have shown that there is no absolute universality in human brain function because various diversities were born in the history of the earth over 3.5 billion years.

"Evolution" is adaptability and adaptability, and living things change with time and condition. All things such as human beings, countries, continents are always flowing, and the only thing that is unchanged is the state that things are constantly changing. In other words, it is context dependent whether the behavior or state is "appropriate" or "inappropriate".

Researchers in this study "There is no universal and optimal profile of brain function.The evolution has resulted in a surprisingly diverse" human behavior "Psychiatric illness is an individual We think that we should understand in the area of ​​mutation related patterns and functions scattered in the distributed system of the brain rather than separating behavior.

In other words, the way "to define a person only from the psychiatric aspect" is imagination shortage, not to emphasize that the person is himself, but rather to obstruct. Although classical psychiatry is limited / linear, researchers explain that the world is diverse in the first place.

If classical psychiatry is a binary approach, researchers are talking about quantum approaches. In the quantum approach, instead of judging by "0 or 1", we solve one problem by a myriad of parallel elements. With this method, you can understand the whole thing and solve the problem by not knowing individual information individually.

In a binary approach, psychiatrists understand mental health in a limited way and try to fit patients to disease. However, researchers at Yale University said, "Psychiatrists need to look at the majority and make more creative approaches to categorizing." In quantum approaches, even those who were not diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), for example, psychiatrists may find out whether the trend is harmful or not.

"Our argument is that there is no universal / absolute optimal pattern in the structure or function of the brain, that is, from the aspect of one action and brain function, it is clear whether the person is healthy or sick Individual actions, psychological / neuroscientific nature are not too bad .. Context in which that person is ... ... depending on age, social network, environment, etc., certain properties are profit It will be disadvantageous also, "researchers said.
