It is no basis for claiming differences between groups. Second, the research is almost entirely correlational, meaning that measured brain changes are correlated with diagnoses as the measure of ‘mental health’. Correlations never prove cause, as we are taught in our first year of university. And third, where there is evidence of brain changes (correlated with diagnostic criteria for mental health), the correlation can always means something else is causing it all which is unrelated. Two examples, the second one with the brain.

Hidden or difficult-to-observe contexts I have mentioned several times that many contexts which give rise to our behaviours are difficult to see (especially if you sit in an office all day). I have also made the point that in these cases the ‘cause’ is then typically referred to an ‘explanatory’ metaphor of ‘psychological’, ‘mental’ or ‘mind’, or some metaphor of a biological substrate. So attempting to observe contexts in a person’s life that are inherently difficult to observe will feature in a large way in this book because it is an important facet of mental health analysis.
