Modelling Psychopathology Development in Psychiatric Illnesses Using Cognitive Schema Theory and Genetic-Environmental Interactions

Irosh Fernando
Abstract—A deeper understanding of the process of psychopathology development is invaluable not only for taking the necessary preventive measures against the development of psychiatric disorders, but also to predict the course of a psychiatric illnessin a given individual. Even though genetic and environmental influences are implicated in this process, and there are number of psychological theories that explain psychopathology, the exact mechanism of this process is unknown. This paper attempts to explain this mechanism using a mathematical model based on Cognitive Schema Theory and genetic-environmental interactions.

Index Terms—Mathematical modelling of psychopathology development, mathematical modelling of cognitive schema theory, mathematical models in psychology and psychiatry, modelling genetic-environmental interactions.
