Among the disciplines which are growing at the most accelerated pace is psychiatry, and understandably so. Intimately involved with psychology, general biology, neurology, sociology, cultural changes of any kind, it is constantly enriched by these fields and many others, which all converge toward a greater knowledge of man in health and mental illness.
