About this Research Topic
This Research Topic will address the ongoing debate of the possibility to bring together the perspectives of phenomenological clinical assessment methods and neuroscience in neuro-psychiatry. It will also focus on the inclusion of biomarkers and data from neuroscience in order to inform neuro-psychiatric classifications and nomenclature.
Progress in the field of phenomenological psychopathology will be discussed. Further, the contributions of neuroimaging on structural and functional level will be highlighted in the context of investigation of the high-risk for psychosis as an approach to early diagnosis and intervention. The problem of data translation and reification will be addressed by with an emphasis on the possibility of a translational cross- validation between functional neuroimaging measures and clinical assessment methods for depression. The conceptual routes to facilitate integration of diverse databases and sources of information will be presented on broader basis.
Keywords: diagnosis, neuroimaging, psychopathology, translation
