Also notes that she is somewhat depressed about the peace movement in the U.S. as the professional peace people have become quite counterproductive in their attempts.

22 April 1963
Mr. V. Hanly
500 Palo Alto Avenue
Palo Alto, California
Dear Mr. Hanly:
I have been interested to read your letter.
First, let me say that it is well known that some mental diseases are produced by a single imitated gene, present in double dose.
I have suggested that schizophrenia is not a single disease, but is rather a complex of diseases, which we are not yet capable of subjecting to differential diagnosis. I have suggested that several genes may be involved in this complex of diseases. I think, in fact, that some of these genes may be important to mental function, and that it is a special combination of alleles that leads to schizophrenia, in some cases.
Unfortunately it is difficult to make progress in this field. The chemistry of the brain has not been well worked out as yet, and experimental studies are made difficult by difficulty in studying the biochemistry of those portions of the human body that are significant to mental function.
