The new view of self: how genes and neurotransmitters shape your mind, your personality, and your mental health
An fascinating account of a leading scientist's cutting-edge brain research and what it means for the perennial debate between talk therapy and drug therapy
Scientists have long focused on the effects of neurotransmitters in trying to understand how the brain works -- from Oliver Sacks's famous work with dopamine, to equally important studies with seratonin and other transmitters. But a true understanding of the brain's dysfunctional mechanisms has eluded researchers because until recently the emphasis has been on the amount of neurotransmitters rather than how they work. In his leading-edge research at Mr. Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Larry Siever is changing the study and treatment of mental illness by examining the way neurotransmitters work.
In The New Psychiatry, Dr. Siever provides an absorbing account of this research on the front lines of behavioral disorders and what it tells us about our own functioning minds. By showing how psychological problems stem from a combination of both environmental stresses and inherited tendencies, Dr. Siever at last offers a startling alternative view to the longstanding debate between the "talk therapists" and the "drug therapists", and shows that both are needed in resolving mental health disorders.
