The purpose of this paper is to reformulate the Cerebral Disconnection Syndrome propounded by Schwartz (1983) in behavioral and functional terms which are in fact being used to intervene fruitfully in the understanding of other health problems.
As a starting point, the relations between hostility and hypertension development, which supposedly endorse the psychobiologic integration of the proposed syndrome, are reviewed. Afterwards, the conceptual relevance of the cerebral disconnection is discussed; neuropsychological researches, which cast doubt about the alleged hemispheric laterality associated to the emotions, are quoted; and alternative explanations to the syndrome within an analytic-functional approach are proposed.
