At the same time, because symptom-based DSM categories do not principally reflect underlying biology, these categories have limited potential for advancing research into biological mechanisms of brain health and disease. Indeed, none of the mechanisms enumerated above “map onto” a specific DSM diagnosis. Rather, any particular mechanism, such as deficient extinction of conditioned fear or enhanced threat appraisal bias, is implicated in not one but multiple DSM entities, thus yielding pathophysiological overlap and clinical comorbidity across disorders.
