Thomas Ban, David Healy and Edward Shorter: The History Committee of CINP: Past, Present and Future
The History Committee of CINP: Past, Present and Future by Thomas Ban, David Healy and Edward Shorter was first published in the “Spring 1999” issue of the CINP Newsletter. It reviews the story of the Committee from the time it was established in 1986 to 1998 and the documentation of the history of CINP and neuropsychopharmacology from the mid-1950s to the late 1990s, in the following publications: Thirty Years of CINP – A Brief History of the Collegium Internationale Neuro-Psychopharmacologium (Ban and Hippius, 1988), Psychopharmacology in Perspective (Ban and Hippius, 1992), Towards CINP – From the Paris Colloquium Through the Milan Symposium (Ban and Hippius, 1994) and A History of the CINP (Ban and Ray, 1996) that includes Early Year-From the Inaugural Meeting to the Third Congress in Munich (Ban, Ray and Hippius, 1996) and The Rise of Psychopharmacology and the Story of CINP (Ban, Healy and Shorter, 1998). Subsequently, the documentation of the history of the field and CINP continued until 2006 with the publication of The Triumph of Psychopharmacology and the Story of CINP (Ban, Healy and Shorter, 2000), From Psychopharmacology to Neuropsychopharmacology in the 1980s and The Story of CINP As Told in Autobiography (Ban, Healy and Shorter, 2002), Reflections on Twentieth–Century Psychopharmacology (Ban, Healy and Shorter, 2004) and The Neurotransmitter Era in Neuropsychopharmacology (Ban and Ucha Udabe, 2006).
