Special Issue "Neurobiological Response of Thalamus to Stress or Trauma"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
Recently, the thalamus and thalamic circuit has been suggested to be important in the neurobiological response to psychological trauma or stress. This Special Issue will cover various levels of research from molecular or cellular studies to human brain imaging studies reporting the neurobiological responses of the thalamus to stress or trauma. These studies will help in understanding the role of thalamus or thalamic circuits in the stress-induced emotional, cognitive, and behavioral change. In addition, they also will provide neurobiological insights into the development of approaches toward the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of stress- or trauma-related psychiatric disorders.
