The people didn't bother if the Tories won
Only Norwich South (where I live) and Cambridge (where I used to live) are labour in a sea of blue in the east of England (although North Norfolk stayed with Norman Lamb and Clacton with Douglas Carswell). Even Great Yarmouth is a natural Tory seat with aff...

Madness in civilisation
I'm not sure if it really works, as I did in my previous post , collecting together tweets of quotes or amended quotes from a book which I've sent when I'm reading it. Another book I've recently read is Andrew Scull's  Madness in civilization: A cultural hi...

The psychogenic legacy of Adolf Meyer
Useful  paper by Jordan Devylder on Adolf Meyer's psychogenic model of schizophrenia (dementia praecox), relevant to a  previous post , summarises what I have been trying to say about Meyer. The article describes the development of Meyer's psychogenic theor...

Psychiatric research folly
A perspective in  Science by  Thomas Insel & Bruce Cuthbert should make american psychiatry fearful about the scientific credibility of its NIMH director. He's gone completely 'over the top' in his speculation about RDoC and precision medicine (see previous...

Being explicit about the nature of mental illness
I am not sure why Ketan Jethwa has moved to a core training post in medicine from an academic psychiatry training post. Could it reflect his disillusionment with psychiatry or is he wanting to ensure  an adequate medical foundation for his psychiatric caree...

No-one should believe the chemical imbalance theory
A  post on Slate Star Codex argues that the idea that "depression is a drop-dead simple serotonin deficiency was never taken seriously by mainstream psychiatry". There may be some truth in this view, but there's no doubt that many people have been taken in ...

Jeffery Lieberman (who I have mentioned in a previous post ) is angry about Tanya Luhrmann's article in The New York Times (see his video post on Medscape Psychiatry) . He's worried that people reading Luhrmann's article may think they don't have a mental i...
