In collaboration with the journal, Neuropsychopharmacology, we will be posting
a series of essays on the history of neuropsychopharmacology. These essays will aim to address
contemporary issues in the field from a variety of historical perspectives, such as drug evaluation
and regulation, outcome assessment, and human experimentation. To capture the complexity of the
field’s history, the essays will traverse the huge disciplinary and scientific terrain mapped by
contemporary Neuropharmacology; a terrain that ranges from clinical psychiatry and psychology, to
descriptive psychopathology, to medicinal chemistry, and to molecular biology. While the articles
will have appeared in the journal first, the authors will expand them for publication on the web
and, when relevant, make use of digital the ACNP’s digital archival collections.
These essays should spark vigorous debate and thoughtful reflection.
