Gary Small, MD, is Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences and Parlow-Solomon Professor on Aging at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, where he is also Director of the UCLA Longevity Center. Dr. Small was a phi beta kappa, summa cum laude graduate of UCLA and earned his medical degree (alpha omega alpha) at the University of Southern California. After an internal medicine internship at Children’s Hospital and Adult Medical Center in San Francisco, he completed a psychiatry residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and a clinical fellowship at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Small then completed a geriatric psychiatry fellowship at UCLA. He has authored more than 500 scientific publications, as well as The New York Times bestseller, "The Memory Bible." Dr Small is the recipient of many awards and honors, including the Jack Weinberg Award from the American Psychiatric Association and the Senior Investigator Award from the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry. In 2002, Scientific American magazine named Dr. Small one of the world's top 50 innovators in science and technology.

MeSH is:

  • an acronym for Medical Subject Headings.
  • the U.S. National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary (thesaurus).
  • a vocabulary that gives uniformity and consistency to the indexing and cataloging of biomedical literature.
  • a distinctive feature of MEDLINE.
  • arranged in a hierarchical manner called the MeSH Tree Structures.
  • updated annually.

MeSH Vocabulary includes four types of terms:

  • Headings
  • Subheadings
  • Supplementary Concept Records
  • Publication Characteristics (or Types)

Over 26,000 MeSH headings (also called "main headings" or "descriptors" represents concepts found in the biomedical literature

Subheadings - (also called qualifiers) are attached to MeSH headings to describe a specific aspect of a concept.

Supplementary Concept Records are over 200,000 terms in a separate thesaurus from the Medical Subject Headings. These are primarily substance terms, but also include some protocols and rare desease terms. These terms are updated weekly.

Publication Characteristics or (Publication Types) describe the type of publication being indexed; i.e., what the item is, not what the article is about.
