These traits are considered complex for several reasons. First, their clinical expression varies widely, with such aspects as age at onset, length of episodes, response to treatments, and constellation of symptoms all varying widely between individuals. Second, while the evidence for a genetic influence on the trait is strong, it also suggests that multiple genes each with modest or small effect, acting singly or in combination, are necessary for the trait to develop. There may be multiple rare or common variations within each gene that influence the risk or expression of the trait.
