New York, NY
 – May 18, 2013  –– 

The controversial revision to psychiatrists' "bible" of diagnostic criteria has finally arrived. The American Psychiatric Association released its fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or dubbed simply as the "DSM-5." "I'm very curious to see what happens because as you know there's kind of this tension between the DSM and some of the new NIMH initiatives," Dr. James Murrough, an assistant professor of psychiatry and neuroscience at The Mount Sinai Hospital, told CBSNews.com Murrough was not involved in the new DSM, but will be presenting research at the APA meeting this weekend.
