Anxiety Disorders

Part of the Critical Issues in Neuropsychology book series (CINP)


Anxiety disorders are far more prevalent than any other mental health disorder in the United States, including depression and substance abuse (Barlow, 1988). Despite this fact, neuropsychological investigations of anxiety-based disorders in humans are only beginning to be undertaken. This reflects, in part, the changing conceptualization of the nature of anxiety disorders and the ongoing efforts to refine further their diagnostic classification system (viz., Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-IV). The absence of a unified conceptual framework and the ongoing development of a diagnostic classification system have imposed serious limitations on an examination of the human neuropsychological aspects of the anxiety disorders.
