Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Neuropsychiatric disorders are specific, clinically diagnosed conditions with poorly defined neurobiological bases. They greatly affect an individual's thoughts, perceptions, emotions, and/or overt behavior and may lead to loss of functioning and severe distress. Recent advances in genome research and neuroimaging have led to considerable advances in our understanding of the hereditary and acquired factors related to the etiopathology of those disorders. Hence, we are slowly starting to be able to more precisely link the underlying pathology to the overt clinical signs, helping us to provide an accurate diagnosis and an effective therapeutic plan.

This Special Issue aims to present the latest advances in the diagnostic domain and how they relate to the provision of better treatment options for the benefit of our patients.

Dr. Georgios Floros
