Thank you for sharing this very touching story. Arthur is a good example of how a supportive family and health care system can make a huge difference in patient's outcomes. As a past NARSAD grantee I would like to suggest that in addition to sharpening our medication targets we also need to expand our research agenda to understand the biological substrate mediating the effects the social system at large and the family system in particular. Epigenetics and now inter-generational genetics data indicate that there is much to gain by using a continuum (as opposed to categorical) approach to the socio-biological spectrum of the mind-brain interface.
