The relevance of synaptic plasticity to schizophrenia has been mentioned in this work and in many others. However, the mechanisms of neuronal plasticity have not been used to conceptualize a theoretical framework suggesting exactly in what way it is relevant to the development and maintenance of mental disorders. I have recently published two theoretical papers toward this goal, attempting furthermore to show its relevancy to a novel psychiatric diagnosis. See also
