Interdisciplinary Research to Improve Diagnosis and Treatments in Psychiatry

About this Research Topic

The borderline between different medical sciences is the place of the most interesting research findings. Due to the cooperation of psychiatrists with psychologists, geneticists, radiologists, biochemists, pharmacologists, dieticians, physiotherapists, and other specialists, new ways of diagnosing and treating mental disorders are established. Markers of these disorders are sought in the area of stem cells, neuroimaging, neuropsychology, electrophysiology, immunology, and microbiology. Modern standards, apart from pharmacological treatment, recommend appropriate methods of psychotherapy, dietary management, and the use of physical effort. On the other hand, this borderline creates a challenge for psychiatric clinical practice. Patients who have accompanying somatic diseases often react worse to treatment; their hospitalization is prolonged and the time of remission is shortened. The cooperation between psychiatrists and specialists in other disciplines is necessary to achieve lasting therapeutic success. For specialists in other disciplines, the treatment of patients with concomitant mental illnesses poses a challenge due to the difficulties in doctor-patient cooperation and also the need to take into account the interactions of psychotropic drugs with other medications This challenge was especially evident throughout the time of the pandemic, in which interdisciplinary cooperation has gained a new dimension.

Within the scope of the Research Topic, we invite you to send in works that are created in cooperation between psychiatrists and researchers of other specialties. We welcome Original Research and Reviews of different lengths. We are interested in research in which different views on mental disorders help to break down the schemes of diagnosis and treatment. Works that allow the results obtained to be put into practice will be treated as especially valuable.

In particular, we ask for papers on the following topics:
• searching for biological markers of mental disorders
• new methods of treating mental disorders that go beyond pharmacology
• new ideas for the treatment of patients who have both mental and somatic illnesses
• psychological problems of patients with mental disorders and somatic diseases
• application of new technologies in psychiatry


Keywords: stem cell, comorbidity, neuroimaging, microbiology, new techniques, therapy, neuropsychology, immunology, diet


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
