Advances in neuroimaging technology have opened up tremendous possibilities for assessing the living brain. However, mapping features of the pathological mind is an even more complex task. While mental illnesses are defined clinically, posing evidence about their pathophysiological mechanisms usually requires a transdisciplinary team alongside cutting-edge multimodal imaging approaches. Indeed, current trends in neuropsychiatry are essentially multifactorial issues in which neuroimaging-informed markers play a key, albeit challenging, role in highlighting subtle neurobiological abnormalities.
This Special Issue of Biomedicines aims to provide a suitable forum to tackle such challenges. We are eager to foster clinical and experimental neuroscientists who wish to share their discoveries about (1) early or predictable diagnosis; (2) the efficacy of an innovative therapy or a novel therapeutic regimen; and (3) the accurate prognosis of neuropsychiatric disorders that are supported by neuroimaging substrates. We welcome original articles, clinical or pre-clinical trial studies, and comprehensive reviews related (but not limited) to:
- Psychiatric neuroimaging;
- Advances of molecular imaging;
- Neuroimaging-informed phenotypes;
- Image-based neuropsychiatric diagnosis and prognosis;
- Drug delivery and pharmacological MRI;
- Translational psychiatry;
- Multimodal neuroimaging;
- Neuromodulation and neurostimulation;
- Personalized and complementary medicine;
- Computational psychiatry;
- Gut-brain interactions.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Biomedicines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
