Today's Topic

Psychiatric disorders such as depression and schizophrenia are an enormous cause of disability throughout the world. Yet most current medications are no better than drugs discovered more than half a century ago, and some pharmaceutical companies seem to be giving up. Why has progress in this area been so difficult? Are there any encouraging treatments on the horizon? What new approaches and technologies have the potential to break psychiatric medicine out of this rut?

Join us for a live chat at a special time this week, 3 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, 10 October, on this page. You can leave your questions in the comment box below before the chat starts. The full text of the chat will be archived on this page.
