The corresponding neuropsychodynamic hypotheses are then developed in Chapter 12. As in the case of depression, rather than focusing on single neuronal deficits, I highlight the employment of normally functioning neural coding (i.e. difference-based coding) within an abnormal neuronal context. And it is the employment of the otherwise normally functioning difference-based coding that is supposed to enable and predispose to the complex symptoms and psychodynamic features which are so typical of psychosis.
