Across the developing world there is an explosion in the use of drugs to treat mental illness. But is there really an increase in mental ill health and do these drugs work? These are huge issues with implications for how we view modern society, for public health, for state spending and for our trust in pharmaceutical firms, some of which are amongst the world’s most powerful global corporations. On the grounds of fairness I have to declare a personal interest. The drugs don’t work. Or do they
I watched this IKEA commercial in my intro social psych class, and five plus years later, it is still seared into my memory. Take the minute to turn on your volume and watch this commercial, and then after the jump I'll tell you how Spike Jonze used social psychology to render me near tears. Did you feel bad for the lamp? I know I did. It was just sitting there in the rain looking so sad. Friday Fun: It's just a lamp
..."yes and no". A while back I blogged about some researchers who analysed internet discussions of antidepressants to work out what users thought about them. Now a new paper's just come out, doing much the same thing but focussed on a single comment thread: Miracle Drug, Poison, or Placebo. Back in 2008, MSNBC ran this article, prompted by the recent publication of the famous Kirsch paper. The article itself was short but the ensuing discussion in the comments rapidly grew to epic proportions. Do Antidepressants Work? The Internet Says...

For years, I and others have been arguingthat the current system of publishing science is broken. Publishing and peer-reviewing work only after the study's been conducted and the data analysed allows bad practices - such as selective publication of desirable findings, and running multiple statistical tests to find positive results - to run rampant. So I was extremely interested when I received an email from Jona Sassenhagen, of the University of Marburg, with subject line:Unilaterally raising the standard. Sassenhagen explained that he's chose to pre-register a neuroscience study on a public database, the German Clinical Trials Register (DRKS). His project, Alignment of Late Positive ERP Components to Linguistic Deviations ("P600"), is designed to use EEG to test whether the brain generates a distinct electrical response - the P600 - in response to seeing grammatical errors.
