Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.
