4 Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased; Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow; Raze out the written troubles of the brain; And with some sweet oblivious antidote Cleanse the stuff bosom of that perilous stuff which weighs upon the heart? Do you recognize this quotation? Answer on page 7. ADDRESS CHANGES Please send all address changes to the office of the Secretary; since Division 28 maintains its own mailing list, changes of address sent to APA central office are not forwarded. Complaints about missed issues of'the ~eedle" are sometimes due to improper addressing, to insure receiving every copy as well as official announcements, be sure Secretary Scheckel has your nev address and zip code number. Send changes of address to: Dr. Carl L. Scheckel, Secretary Division of Psychopharmacology of The American Psychological Association Hoffmann-LaRoche, Inc. Nutley, New Jersey And this distilled liquor drink thou off: when presently, through a ll thy veins shall run A cold and drowsy humour; for no pulse shall keep his native progress, but surcease: No warmth, no breath, shall testify thou livest; The roses in thy lips and cheeks shall fade To paly ashes; thy eyes' windows fall; Like death, when he shuts up the day of life; Each part, deprived of supple government, Shall, stiff and stork and cold, appear like death: And in this borrow'd 1-ikeness of shrunk death Thou shalt continue two and forty hours, And then awake as from a pleasant sleep. Do you recognize this quotation? Answer on page 7.

5 Page 4 A FEW COMMENTS ON THE 1967 COUNCIL OF REPRESENTATIVES MEETING (EDITORIAL) As Council Representative I attended both all-day sessions of Council and was most impressed by my own complete unpreparedness to undertake any part in Council affairs. Rather depressing was the degree which Council acts as a "rubber stamp" merely passing on business already digested (and apparently decided) by the Board of Directors. A report of Council. business is available in the American Psychologist for those caring to read it; of importance to Division 28 was the acceptance in principle of a set size of Council membership (100) and allocation of Council seats based on percentage of votes of the entire membership assigned to a particular Division, dropping geographic representation in Council (state Associations), the representatives to be elected by the Divisions as in the past. Everyone has received the "straw vote" ballot for a trial run of this proposed system, with 10 votes to distribute ptc. The immediate conclusion is that, if this new system is eventually implemented (as it probably will be), Division 28 with its small membership will cease to have a voice in Council unless - all its members assign all their votes to Division 28. Considering the multiple interests of 26's membership this would be a most unlikely occurrence. Dropping geographical representation may lead to further schisms in the APA, and the new voting procedure will probably tend to polarize the diverse interests within the APA, with the largest Divisions essentially governing the Association. Generally it would appear to me that the small, special interest, laboratory orientated divisions will cease to be functional within the APA. The proper course for Division 28 would appear to me to be to actively recruit new members and to emphasize the Divisions substantive interests. H.M.H. CALL FOR PAPERS AND SYMPOSIA $ PRIZE OFERED The program committee (G. Heise, Chairman, C. Scheckel, and L. stein) announces a Call for Papers and Symposia for the 1968 meeting to be held in San Francisco, September 1, 2 and 3.

6 Page 5 All paper abstracts and symposia proposals must be submitted by March 1st. On request of the author and at the discretion of the comilttce, individual papers may be given time limits of 10, 15 or 20 minutes, depending on content and time avail.able. For details of preparation and explanation of proper procedures for submitting, see the "Call for Papers and Symposia" issued by the APA Convention Committee or contact program chairman: Dr. George Heise Psychology Department Indiana University Bloomington, Indiana > All bona fide papers submitted will be eligible for a $ cash prize offered for the best paper in the general area of psychopharmacology..judging will be done by the Awards Committee chaired by Dr. Muriel H. Stxn. The winning paper will be announced and, if appropriate, published in The Needle1'. PSYCHOPHARI4ACOLOGY PROGRAI-1 AT IKDIAIJA UNIVERSITY The program in psychopharmacology in the Department of Psychology at Indiana University began in 1962 with a?-year NIMH grant to Roger il. Russell. for research and graduate training i.n "Biochemical Correlates of ~ehavior". George A. Heise, an experimental psychologist, joined the project in 1964 and Roger P. Maickel, a biochemist and. pharmacologist, came to the project from NIH in Although Dr. Russell recently left Indiana to Become Vice-chancellor at the University of California- Irvine? the program is continuin& under the direction of Drs. Heise and Ihickel and is assured of support for the next three years. The research proaam is focussed on relations between measured changes in behavior, neurophysiology, and blood, tissue, and brain leve 1s of chemicals. The laboratory facilities and educational program are designed for active and explicit interaction between the various disciplines relevant to psychopharmacology. The behavior laboratories, containing some 30 operant boxes and controlling equipment for studios with rats, mice, squirrel monkeys, and pigeons, are located directly across the hall from the biochemistry laboratories. The latter are especially well equipped for determination of drug and drug metabolite levels in brain and blood using radioactive isotope techniques.

7 Page 6 At present, 10 graduate students are doing their advanced degree research in psychopharmacology. Four of these students are candidates for the Ph.D. degree in Psychology. They follow the regular Indiana graduate program in Psychology, with a major in Physiological Psychology and a minor or courses in learning or sensory psychology, physiology, biochemistry, and pharmacology. The remaining six students are either Ph.D. candidates in pharmacology who are minoring in psychology, or medical students enrolled in the Medical Sciences Program in which they obtain an advanced degree in a biomedical science (m pharmacology) in addition to the M.D. Regardless of their particular specialty, a11 the graduate students carry out both behavioral and biochemical studies during the course of their research training. Current or recent research studies include behavioral and biochemical studies of REM sleep, drug-induced alterations of svolcod potentials, drug effects on thirs t-induced drinkj ng behavior, deve l.opment of behavioral methods for assessing effects of cholinergic and anti-cholinergic drugs and for measuring drug effects on learning, effects of lesions and direct administration of drugs into specific brain areas on behavior, behavioral effects of altered brain serotonin and norepinephrine levels, physiol ogical disposition and metabolic fate of psychoactive drugs, toxic interactions of psychoactive drugs, characterization of brain enzymatic systems, and developmental pharmacology.
