The capacity to learn is dependent on a set of neurally directed capabilities, including orientation, attention, sensory intake and processing, and ultimately memory, within the short-term (e.g., working memory, encoding, short-term memory) and across time (e.g., extended encoding, consolidation, retrieval, long-term memory). Within the neuropsychiatric disorders, processes that underlie learning and memory are frequently disrupted, contributing to a range of deficits that can impact social engagement, emotional and behavioral regulation, educational and vocational opportunity, and adaptation. Research to date has highlighted such disruptions, and the alterations that underlie them neurobiologically, as a primary target for understanding the broad range of impairments seen in neuropsychiatric conditions and for guiding efforts at intervention, both pharmacologically and rehabilitatively. The goal with this special issue is to review and extend our current state of the knowledge concerning learning and memory dysfunction in neuropsychiatric disorder and to inform ongoing research in intervention and remediation.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Behavioral Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
