October's Book: The Idea of the Brain, by Matthew Cobb (2020)
Clinical psychologist Robert DeRubeis will lead the discussion of chapter 13 on neurochemistry and its relation to our understanding of psychiatric disorders and their treatment. This chapter recounts exciting early breakthroughs, ultimately balanced by an understanding of the complexity of depression and other disorders, and the absence of neurochemical silver bullets. Rob carried out some of the classic studies on antidepressant medication and cognitive therapy for depression.
