Nearly fifty years after Eve Johnstone and colleagues reported ventricular enlargement in schizophrenia and its relation to cognitive impairment, the traditional unimodal comparisons of gray matter volume or BOLD response between patients and healthy controls have progressively given way to a new generation of more sophisticated studies. For example, some studies explore the relations between imaging and genetics, others employ multimodal approaches, others use MRI to conduct neurofeedback therapies, and yet again others use machine learning algorithms to bring research and clinical practice closer. The aim of this Special Issue is this new generation of imaging research in mental disorders. Thus, the main scope of the studies included in this issue will encompass imaging genetics, multimodal neuroimaging, neurofeedback, image-based machine learning, and any other novel imaging approach, as long as they are applied to the investigation of mental disorders. We will also welcome traditional unimodal comparisons if they are focused on psychiatric conditions that have seldom been investigated by previous studies.Dr. Joaquim Raduà
Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs).
