(p.275) 11 Symptoms and syndromes of anxiety
The Neuropsychology of Anxiety

Jeffrey A. Gray

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a typology of disorders of fear and anxiety — such as anxiety disorder, phobias including agoraphobia, panic, and social anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder — mapping them to the two-dimensional framework provided by Chapters 2 and 6. It treats syndromes as resulting from unusual reactivity of structures and symptoms as resulting from unusual activity, with symptoms not providing a good guide to syndromes. Specific tests for some syndromes are derived from the theory.

Keywords:   anxiety disorder, phobia, panic, post-traumatic stress disorder, agoraphobia, social anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, diagnosis
