Psyche in the Lab
Commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Canadian Psychiatric Research Foundation, this volume celebrates the creativity and dedication of Canadian scientists who have helped unravel some of the mysteries of the mind over recent years. The authors used criterion-based techniques to select 16 leading scientists for semi-structured interviews, as well as well-known philanthropists, policy-makers, and psychiatric “survivors.” The fascinating interviews and reports not only show what motivates such outstanding individuals, but also describe what Canada and other countries can do to encourage more and better neuroscience. Of interest to clinicians, researchers, and students of psychiatry, as well as interested lay persons.
Those interviewed or reported on include researchers like Martin Alda, Dan Offord, Bruno Cormier, Cheryl Grady, Raymond Lam, Herta Guttman, Zindel Segal, Harvey Chochinov, Rémi Quirion, Philip Seeman, Rachel Morehouse, Katherine Hegadoren, Juan Carlos Negrete, Richard Swinson, Jeanette Holden, Patrick McGeer, Edith McGeer; as well as Doris Sommer-Rotenberg, Michael Alzamora, Don Tapscott, Ana Lopes, Ross Taylor, Beva Dudiak, Sandra Sharwood, Edward Bronfman, Michael H. Wilson, Earla Dunbar, Joseph Tanenbaum, Diana Tremain, Edward Tremain, Sandra Schulze, Jack Barr, and Renée Marier.
