Through reviewing what is known about the nature, course, and heritability of borderline personality disorder (BPD), we argue for a reconceptualization of this disorder that would lead to its placement on Axis I. Borderline personality disorder is a prevalent and disabling condition, and yet the empirical research into its nature and treatment has not been commensurate with the seriousness of the illness. We not only review empirical evidence about the etiology, phenomenology, and course of the… Expand
The Case for Borderline Personality Disorder as an Emotional Disorder: Implications for Treatment
The goal of this article is to advance understanding of borderline personality disorder (BPD) as an emotional disorder and to use this information as a heuristic for reconceptualizing targetedExpand
Borderline personality disorder: ontogeny of a diagnosis.
  • J. Gunderson
  • Psychology, Medicine

  • 2009
TLDR
Borderline personality disorder has moved from being a psychoanalytic colloquialism for untreatable neurotics to becoming a valid diagnosis with significant heritability and with specific and effective psychotherapeutic treatments. Expand
Borderline Personality Disorder: Ontogeny of a Diagnosis
Objective:The purpose of this article is to describe the development of the borderline personality disorder diagnosis, highlighting both the obstacles encountered and the associated achievements.Expand
The nature of borderline personality disorder: multiple dimensions, multiple symptoms, but one category.

TLDR
This review suggests that BPD needs to be diagnosed with a narrower set of criteria that cover all of its domains and will need to be redefined on the basis of its etiology and pathogenesis in the long run. Expand
The relationship between personality disorders and Axis I psychopathology: deconstructing comorbidity.
TLDR
The review indicates that the associations between clinical disorders and personality disorders clearly varied within each disorder and across the six personality disorders, and it seems premature to conclude that comorbidity is best conceptualized by having all disorders in a single category or by deleting disorders so that comorbidity is reduced.

Borderline Personality Disorder Is Not a Subtype of Bipolar Disorder
Broadening the concept of bipolar spectrum, selective attention to similarities between the spectrum and other disorders and ignoring the differences, abandonment of skillful clinical judgment andExpand
A Developmental Psychopathology and Neurobiological Model of Borderline Personality Disorder in Adolescence
The antecedents and risk factors and for developing borderline personality disorder (BPD) are now well documented, but there is a paucity of developmental models to understand the key processesExpand
Biological Advances in Personality Disorders
Neurobiological studies have focused primarily on DSM-IV axis I disorders, as they display extensive, and often severe and episodic symptomatology. However, there is an emerging focus on theExpand
Chapter 3 NEUROPSYCHOBIOLOGY , COMORBIDITY AND DIMENSIONAL MODELS IN BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER : CRITICAL ISSUES FOR TREATMENT
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) affects approximately the 1-2% of the general population in the US, with an incidence up to 20% in psychiatric settings. The pathogenesis of BPD involves complexExpand
The Neurobiology of Borderline Personality Disorder.
TLDR
The heritability, genetics, and biological models of BPD are reviewed, including the neurobiology of affective instability, impaired interoception, oxytocin and opiate models of poor attachment or interpersonal dysfunction, and structural brain imaging over the course of development in BPD. Expand

TLDR
The authors conclude that each borderline patient has a unique pathway to the development of BPD that is a painful variation on an unfortunate but familiar theme. Expand

TLDR
The recent and dramatic expansion in studies about borderline and depressive disorders is reviewed and implications are drawn with respect to classification, therapeutics, and defining the borderline construct. Expand
Comorbidity of borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
The DSM-III BPD appears to constitute a very heterogeneous category with unclear boundaries, overlapping with many different disorders but without a specific association with any one Axis I disorder. Expand
Descriptive and longitudinal observations on the relationship of borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder.
TLDR
A modest association between borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder is reported and whether the presence of either disorder confers the risk for new onsets of the other is investigated. Expand

TLDR
More studies, large and small, are needed to reach firmer conclusions about the influence of genetics on BPD, and the less than-ideal reliability of measurements used in this research may also reduce the effects of genes and common environment while increasing the effect of unique or nonshared environment.

Dopamine Dysfunction in Borderline Personality Disorder: A Hypothesis
TLDR
The results of this review suggest that DA dysfunction is associated with three dimensions of BPD, that is, emotional dysregulation, impulsivity, and cognitive-perceptual impairment. Expand
New developments in the neurobiology of borderline personality disorder
TLDR
Most of the neuropsychologic, physiologic, endocrinologic, and neuroimaging data support the theory that a dual brain pathology, affecting prefrontal and limbic circuits, may underlie this hyperarousal-dyscontrol syndrome. Expand
A psychobiological perspective on the personality disorders.
TLDR
A psychobiological model based on dimensions of cognitive/perceptual organization, impulsivity/aggression, affective instability, and anxiety/inhibition is proposed, which spans the DSM-III-R axis I and axis II disorders. Expand
