This chapter undertakes a detailed examination of two of the most significant issues raised by critics of DSM-5. The first recognizes the continued absence of viable biomarkers of specific diagnoses, despite intense efforts by neuroscientists to identify such markers. The second question concerns what many critics view as the inordinate influence of the pharmaceutical industry-“Big Pharma”-on the highly troubling problem of overdiagnosis that began with DSM-III.
