[2009] Drug-Induced Dementia: a perfect crime by MD Grace E. Jackson
1) the causal connection between antipsychotic drugs and Alzheimer's disease
2) the evidentiary link between stimulants (ADHD drugs) and shrinkage of the brain
3) the limitations of the neurogenesis theory of antidepressant action (in fact, Dr. Jackson discusses the research evidence which shows that antidepressants damage the hippocampus - the learning and memory center of the brain)
4) the evidence for mood stabilizers as neurodegenerative, rather than neuroprotective agents
5) the reasons why existing drug treatments are particularly hazardous for survivors of traumatic brain injury (i.e., soldiers with head injuries)
