Two areas appear most promising. One is that great progress has been made in understanding brain networks in different psychiatric disorders. Another is advances in genetics that promise the identification of specific genes linked to the development of some psychiatric disorders. We hope further research will translate these advances into new approaches to treatment and prevention.
