In Reply We thank Dr Willenbring for pointing out some of the criteria that we use in selecting editorialists for comments on articles to be published in JAMA Psychiatry. First, we want someone who is a first-rate scientist and who has a sophisticated appreciation of the experimental and clinical issues. Second, we generally choose someone who is not in the exact same field of study so that he or she can bring a different perspective than that of the authors. We were pleased that Dr Volkow, who is not only the director of NIDA but also a very active scientist in the area of addictions and brain imaging, took the time to write this very insightful editorial. Scientific factors and not politics motivated our choice of Dr Volkow.
