Biological factors

Most of the evidence that biological factors play a role in the development of neurotic disorders derives from studies in younger subjects (see ChapteL4Z..1, C..h§p.t.e.L 4.7.2 and Chapter.4.7.3). These studies indicate that genetic factors contribute significantly to premorbid vulnerability, but the role that they play in old age is not known.

It has been suggested that some anxiety disorders following stroke may be related to lesion location.(8)
