Thomas A. Ban: In historical perspective: Peralta, Cuesta and their associates’ findings on the highest familiality of Leonhard’s classification in polynosologic study 

Thomas A. Ban’s reply to Carlos Morra’s comment

         I certainly agree with you. It would be desirable to link highly sophisticated molecular genetic research with commensurate highly sophisticated psychiatric research in differentiated psychopathology and psychiatric nosology. I am wondering why this was not done and how could molecular genetic research in mental illness justify the current fishing expeditions. I hope Peralta, Cuesta and his associates’ findings will call for a re-evaluation of the current situation.
