Research Topic

New Perspectives in Psychopathology

About this Research Topic



Nowadays, important challenges are posed to psychiatry and psychology. These are in the domain of neurosciences, since the neurobiological correlates of the symptoms and psychiatric disorders are far from what was intended, but also of clinical order because of a progressive increase of the diagnostic categories in the diagnostic manuals, or therapeutical, ethical, social and legal ones. It is urgent, therefore, to reflect on these aspects, rather than continue to replicate the same paradigms.

In this Research Topic, authors are welcome to contribute with papers that fit into new perspectives in terms of the nosological organization of psychiatry (eg, through spectra, dimensions, etc.), alternative causation or correlation models, translational methodologies, among other issues. Some theories of the past may be refined based on the latest scientific evidence (notably from neurosciences) or new alternatives for facing the future of research in psychiatry can be pointed. Conceptual and empirical contributions are welcome.


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.
