The Neurology and Neurobiology of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome

About this Research Topic

Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) is one of the fastest-growing public health crises in the world. An increasing body of evidence suggests that the impact of NAS is not limited to withdrawal, and children affected by NAS are at risk of brain injury. However, the etiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders associated with prenatal drug exposure causing NAS continues to be unclear, having an impact on the management of thousands of vulnerable children around the world. 


The aim of this Research Topic is to explore the etiology, neurobiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of neurological disorders associated with NAS and prenatal drug exposure. 


It is envisaged that this article collection will address the following thematic areas related to NAS:


1.    Basic science

2.    Epidemiology

3.    Translational research

4.    Clinical trials and cohort studies

5.    Systematic and narrative reviews

6.    Meta-analyses.


Keywords: Brain injury, neonatal abstinence syndrome, NAS, etiology, diagnosis, screening, treatment


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.
