Taken as a whole, the extant empirical literature on resilience has traditionally employed behavioral indices of adversity and positive adaptation. , Garmezy, Masten, & Tellegen, 1984; Garmezy & Tellegen, 1984; Masten & Garmezy, 1985; Werner & Smith, 1982), were undertaken prior to the inception of modern techniques for examining the neural and biological correlates of human behavior and development. In addition, the scientific study of resilience had its roots in the psychodynamic and behavioral theoretical traditions, where research was largely guided by the study of risk and symptom treatment (Masten & Reed, 2002).

Cannon et al. (1999) also discovered that preschizophrenic individuals show evidence of cognitive, motor, and behavioral dysfunction during the first 7 years of life (cf. , 1991). Because there was not evidence of significant intraindividual decline during this period within any domain of functioning, the results argue against the view that a deteriorative neural process underlies these early phenotypic expressions of liability to Schizophrenia. Rather, the findings suggest that an increasing number of diverse phenotypic signs emerge with age as the various brain systems required for their expression reach fundamental maturity.

Specifically, the transactional, organizational perspective (Cicchetti & Schneider-Rosen, 1986; Cicchetti & Sroufe, 1978), one of the major theoretical approaches in the field of developmental psychopathology, provides an orientation that inherently takes into account multiple levels of analysis and allows for combining biological and psychological mechanisms within the same explanatory framework (Cicchetti & Tucker, 1994a), thus providing a ready-made structure for the integration of a biological perspective into resilience.
