    21 Sep (SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN) – Once again, antidepressants have been linked to an episode of horrific violence.

    (Shimi Cohen) – We, as human beings, think that through social networks, we’ve somehow become more social creatures.   The problem with this theory is, the more we “connect” online, the less actual human interactions we have, making us actually fairly unsocial.  (more…)

    3 May – Sigh of relief. The DSM 5 website announced this morning that two of its most controversial proposals have finally been dropped. We have dodged bullets on Psychosis Risk and Mixed Anxiety Depression. Both are now definitively rejected as official DSM 5 diagnoses and instead are being exiled to the appendix.
