Chronic diseases, defined broadly as conditions that persist over 6 months and require ongoing medical attention or limit activities of daily living, are becoming increasingly common and seriously affect people’s daily lives. Although there is surprising upsurge in neuroimaging findings in addressing the brain structural and functional changes associated with Chronic diseases, it is still difficult to glean a consistent story about its neuropathology of brain alterations. The underlying relationship between chronic diseases and brain function has not been well studied. Therefore, a more comprehensive understanding of brain structural and functional changes associated with chronic diseases are needed.

The current Research Topic welcomes leading experts in the field to summarize their research in a way that should attract the broader readership of the journal. Together with these articles, we hope this Research Topic contributes to a better understanding of the link between brain and chronic diseases, and offers an up-to-date view on how chronic diseases affects our brain. We believe this Research Topic will stimulate discussions in a wider public not only involving those working in the field, since both conditions cause an extreme impairment of quality of life, in particular in those patients suffering from chronic diseases. We welcome investigators to submit original research articles and reviews to this Research Topic.

We welcome manuscripts of the follow pathologies, but not limited to:
• Sleep Disorders
• Sleep Restriction
• affective disorders
• depression
• schizophrenia
• dementia
• Parkinson's disease
• Non-PD disorders

Investigated using the following techniques, but not limited to:
• EEG/ERP
