Abstract

Anxiety disorders are highly comorbid with each other and with major depressive disorder. As syndromes, anxiety and mood disorders share many symptoms, and several treatments are effective for both. Despite this overlap, there exist many distinguishing features that support the continued classification of individual anxiety disorders that are distinct from each other and from major depression. The goal of this article is to describe the key biological similarities and differences between anxiety disorders.
