About this Research Topic
In particular, novel neuroimaging methods (e.g., structural/functional magnetic resonance imaging), have allowed researchers to further understand both anatomical and functional deficits in patients with mood disorders.
The goal of this Research Topic is to highlight the most recent advances in the area of neuroimaging in mood disorders. Studies involving imaging modalities such as structural magnetic resonance imaging (sMRI) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) aimed at outlining brain irregularities accompanying mood disorders are welcome. Studies using advanced imaging methods to explore the pathophysiology or treatment of mood disorders in particular are also welcome.
We would like to receive articles focused on recent developments on (but not limited to) the following techniques:
- structural magnetic resonance imaging
- functional magnetic resonance imaging
- magnetic resonance spectroscopy
- positron emission tomography
- diffusion tensor imaging
Keywords: mood disorders, major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, Dysthymia, Cyclothymic disorder, Neuroimaging, Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, diffusion tensor imaging
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.
