Remission is the decrease in or disappearance of signs and symptoms in both mental and physical disorders, with possibly a return to normal functioning, in the context of the existence of a chronic condition. By implication is that the improvement is only temporary and the impaired functioning could return. eg her depression is in remission. In this sense their is some nderstanding of the underlying processes leading to the variation in symptoms. This contrasts with the notion of spontaneous remission which implies that these factors are not known.
