Psychiatric and neurologic disorders usually show a variety of symptoms and clinical course. Each patient has different symptoms and comorbidity. The complexity of psychopathology may reflect the complexity of neural basis. In fact, a lot of psychiatric and neurologic disorders are heterogeneous syndromes characterized by diverse affective, cognitive, and somatic symptoms. Thus, the researches focus on the disorder level may be problematic because it may conceal neural basis of specific symptom and differential associations between clinically different symptoms.
For an upcoming Special Issue (Decoding the psychopathology of brain disorders) in the Journal of Integrative Neuroscience (SCI-E and pubmed indexed), we invite researchers to contribute their Original Research, Review, Perspective, Case Report, Letter to the Editor, Commentary, Short Communication, Brief Report about all range of psychopathology of psychiatric and neurologic disorders. Specifically, we focus on neural basis of specific symptom and differential associations between clinically different symptoms. We hope this special issue will stimulate the continuing efforts to better understand the psychopathology of brain disorders. Potential topics may include:
● Psychopathology and COVID-19
● Psychopathology of childhood and geriatric group
● Psychopathology and magnetic resonance imaging
● Psychopathology and electroencephalogram
● Psychopathology and eye-tracking
● Psychopathology and event-related potentials
● Psychopathology and network analysis
● Psychopathology and neuropsychological tests
