In the third definition, for chemistry, dissociation is said to happen primarily via heat or electrolysis, when in fact the seperating ionic salts into their component ions via the dissolution of soluble ionic salts, is the most common type of dissociation in chemistry. This should be reflected in the thrid definition. Joel W 20:46, 13 March 2011 (UTC)Joel W

In the fifth definition, there is no context for psychology and thus no real definition: In psychology, to undergo dissociation means to develop multiple or alternative personalities, which is known as "dissociative disorder." Also, to undergo dissociation means to change from one personality to another for someone who has dissociative disorder. Joel W 20:56, 13 March 2011 (UTC)Joel W
