Resumo

ARANGO-DAVILA, César Augusto. THE BRAIN: FROM STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION TO PSYCHOPATOLOGY.: Second Part: Microestructure and the Processing of Information.. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2004, vol.33, suppl.1, pp.126-154. ISSN 0034-7450.

The last two decades have been of fundamental importance in the study and understanding of the nervous system, this progress has not only addressed the neurochemical, neurophysiological, neuroanatomical, cytoarchitectonical, imageological phenomena underlying the cerebral mass but also the relationship of this knowledge with complex aspects of behavior and the psyche. The purpose of emphasizing a modern vision of the grasp of neuroscience must necessarily reflect a wider understanding of the reality of mental illness allowing a confluence between our biological, behavioral, psychic and social conditions. Based on the macro and microstructural organization of the nervous system this article explains in detail the phenomena of processing of information in the brain and the result of alterations in the neurotransmitter systems in the genesis of delusions, derealization and depersonalization, hallucinations, illusions, mood disorders and anxiety disorders.

Palavras-chave : Central nervous system; cognition; affect; neurobiology; psychobiology; cortical columns; cortical modules.
