The identification of neurobiological biomarkers for mental disorders has the potential to revolutionize and redefine psychiatry, as these could aid diagnosis and identify novel treatment targets. Toward this goal, non-invasive brain imaging studies of psychiatric disorders have greatly accelerated over the past two decades. Specifically, neurophysiological approaches, such as electro- and magneto-encephalography (EEG/MEG) have revealed sensory and cognitive abnormalities in psychiatric conditions due to their superior temporal resolution in the ms range. MEG has an advantage of capturing neuronal dynamics with greater spatiotemporal and spectral detail than EEG. Thus, MEG may be an ideal tool to capture pathophysiological processes with excellent temporal and spatial resolution. However, MEG has only been recently applied across different psychiatric syndromes.

This Research Topic will provide a platform for highlighting recent and current advances in MEG research in psychiatry. We will welcome original research, reviews, brief research reports and opinion articles within the scope of MEG research in mental disorders (e.g., schizophrenia, psychosis, bipolar disorders, depressive disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, anxiety disorders and neurocognitive disorders). Submissions of MEG works in healthy participants which would be relevant to psychiatric conditions will also be considered.

It is hoped that the contributions to this Research Topic will spark new research studies aimed at identifying the neurobiology of mental disorders.
