Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The DSM-5, introduced in 2013, has allowed for a renewed appreciation of the longitudinal, whole-life perspective of neurodevelopmental disorders in psychiatry, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other communication, speech and language disorders and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), intellectual disability (ID), as well as other specific learning disorders.

However, our understanding of the basic aspects of the pathophysiology of these disorders and efficient therapies is still incomplete. The adult population suffering from these disorders is especially widely under-researched and rarely benefits from adequate treatments.

In this Special Issue of Biomedicines, we aim to present the actual state of the art in the understanding of the pathophysiology of neurodevelopmental disorders and their treatments, from birth to the end of life.
