Special Issue "Immunology of Neuropsychiatric Disorders"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2021.
Interests: Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry; Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias; Neuroimmunology; Immunopsychiatry; Biomarkers
Neuropsychiatric disorders are among the main causes of disability worldwide. While the development of novel neurotransmitter-based pharmacological strategies to address them has stalled, different target mechanisms have been pursued. Among promising candidates, there is a growing recognition of the role played by immune mechanisms on body homeostasis in general and central nervous system functioning in particular. Understanding the involvement of immune processes in the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of neuropsychiatric disorders opens venues for the investigation of new biomarkers and molecular targets for these conditions. Accordingly, the overall objective of this Special Issue is to provide an overview of the emerging area of immunopsychiatry.
