Recent theories of psychological disorders are beginning to break down the traditional dichotomy between mental and physical processes.

The emotional response to this dysfunction appeared, however, to be somewhat excessive given the subtlety of the deficit. This is seen as a psychological reaction to a neuropsychological dysfunction.
