Psyche & Health in the E.G.O.
I reckon that the door to psychopathy must have been left open.

"Understanding how the brain parcels out specific decision-making tasks can offer insight into conditions in which such networks go awry, such as in the case of psychiatric disorders. Depressed people, for example, clearly have difficulty with value-based decision making: because nothing feels good or seems appealing, all options appear equally bleak and making choices becomes impossible. Hoarding disorder, in contrast, may involve overvaluation of certain possessions and impairment of the cognitive control needed to shift one’s attention away from them. That explains why hoarding becomes more important than other life goals like maintaining relationships."
Dr. Mark Hyman presented an interesting series titled "Broken Brain" that focused on a number of conditions including depression but not the "Hoarding disorder" which I would have been interested in seeing as one of our former "fellow gardeners"(FG) had that condition. Other FGs included the conditions of Bipolar Brain Disorder, PTSD, Depression, plus couple others that I'll have to research to get names for.
