Disinhibition has a number of meanings in psychology

Outside the neurological context, disinhibition can mean:

  • In social psychology disinhibition (social) is unrestrained behavior resulting from a lessening or loss of inhibitions or a disregard of cultural constraints.

In neurology Disinhibition is a neurological process which results in the production of a behaviour. There are always a great number of ways an animal or individual could behave. Most of these options will be inhibited at any one time, while one particuarly salient one should ordinarily be disinhibited. Parkinson's disease is often seen as a failure of disinhibition, which leads to a patient being unable to initiate desired actions.
