Since antiquity it has always sought to describe and find a solution to the problems of the conduct, in the Greek world, emerges for the first time the concept of mental illness, by referring to that madness came from a demonologica explanation. Medieval religious thought explained all those abnormal behaviors as a result of a bad eye, spell, or an epilepsy/possession. The priests healed people who suffered from epilepsy through what is called exorcism and apparently gave them results and society was left amazed, but the reality is that the person was returning to its normal state only by epilepsy takes a time short and not by the exorcism.

Psychopathology for their study is based on medical, in the biological and in the behavioral, taking a little of the 3 for their successful integration. I believe that you for our normal or abnormal behavior, biological factors have influence, but more than anything it is the context that determines how we will behave, since every action has a reaction, if we are exposed to study under lot of pressure definitely we are going to behave different to that if we are on vacation, resting and without responsibilities tests and tasksso only 30% is determined by the biological and 70% environmental influences.
