❝ According to Kozikowski, he and others in the field of CNS drug discovery “may think we know what we are doing. We may think we are clever enough to invent a magic bullet for a brain disease by making a small molecule that interacts with a specific receptor, transporter, or enzyme. But we may in fact be fooling ourselves. There’s a level of impossibility in the idea that a single small molecule can fix a complex organ like the brain.” Some psychiatric diagnoses, Kozikowski believes, have “rocky” foundations. “Some conditions are just part of life” and don’t require pharmaceutical intervention ❞
