About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 20 December 2022
Manuscript Extension Submission Deadline 20 January 2023

As we enter the third decade of the 21st Century major advances in the fast-growing field of mental health have been exceptional. Frontiers have organized a series of Research Topics to highlight the latest advances in mental health research.

The Neuroscience portfolio at Frontiers is launching Research Topics to promote international scientific awareness of mental health disorders. Over the past few decades, major progress has been made toward addressing inequalities for people with mental health Disorders, which have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic with disproportionate increases in loneliness, disruptions to routines, and services and support systems.

This Research Topic article collection will focus on neuroscience research that can inform solutions for creating a culture of awareness, understanding, and solidarity, with this Topic focusing on the progress and challenges still faced in understanding the Neuroanatomy of alcohol addiction.

The Research Topic solicits brief, forward-looking contributions from researchers around the globe that describe the state of the art, outline recent developments and major accomplishments that have been achieved and what needs to occur to move the field forward. Authors are encouraged to identify the greatest challenges in their sub-disciplines, and to formulate how to begin to address those challenges.

This special edition Research Topic aims to shed light on the progress made in the past decade in the field of Neuroanatomy and Addiction and on the challenges ahead while providing a thorough overview of the state of the art in Neuroanatomy. This article collection is intended to inspire, inform and provide direction and guidance to researchers in the field.

• Assessing changes in subcortical volumes in alcohol use disorder (AUD)

• Studies using morphometry-based classifier (MC) to identify subcortical volumes and evaluating it’s effectiveness

• Assessing the effect of abstinence and recovery on subcortical volumes

• Effect alcohol abuse has on the hippocampus, amygdala, cerebellum, putamen, corpus callosum, and brain stem

• Why these areas are often smaller and show stronger age-related degeneration in Alcohol abuse patients

• The mechanism behind these volume decreases and age-related degeneration

• The effect of alcohol abuse on ventricles and cerebrospinal fluid and the mechanisms behind this

• New insights investigating the volume of the amygdala and its association with other psychiatric disorders such as anxiety or depression

• New insights into examining subcortical regions in Alcohol dependency which are associated with accelerated aging and the amygdala’s associations with anxiety and depressive symptoms

Keywords: amygdala, aging, alcoholism, subcortical regions


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.
