Special Issue "Neurobiological Mechanisms Implicated in Stress-Related Psychiatric Disorders"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2021.
Stress has been implicated in the pathophysiology of a number of psychiatric conditions including mood disorders, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. The mechanisms that underlie the effects of stress are diverse and may affect neuronal structures, the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis, neurotransmitters, inflammation, oxidation–reduction regulation, and synaptic function. Gene–environment interactions also play an important role in the interaction between stress and psychiatric disorders. The regulation of epigenetic modifications, including DNA methylation, histone modifications, miRNA signatures, and higher-order chromatin structure, has also been identified as a key mechanism underlying the effects of stress on psychiatric conditions.
This Special Issue, “Neurobiological Mechanisms Implicated in Stress-Related Psychiatric Disorders”, will cover a selection of original and review articles on the neurobiology of stress-related psychiatric disorders.
