It is now clear that unraveling how the brain creates behavior, and how this understanding can better inform new therapies and interventions, will require vast new approaches to tackling the complex problems in Neuroscience and Psychiatry. Fortunately, tremendous evolution in sample sizes, computing power, neuroimaging technologies, digital approaches to phenotyping, and computational modeling have rapidly brought in a new era of Big Data in Psychiatry. How we understand and utilize computational approaches to enormous data, from genomics to neuroimaging to phenotyping, may well determine our success as a field in the coming years.
To address these issues, the 2021 Neuropsychopharmacology Reviews edition aims to cover a broad swath, from digital data collection, to neuroimaging across development, to multiomics across disorders, to computational approaches to Big Data in Psychiatry.
BrainPod is the podcast from the journal Neuropsychopharmacology, produced in association with Nature Publishing Group. Join us as we delve into the latest basic and clinical research that advance our understanding of the brain and behavior, featuring highlighted content from a top journal in fields of neuroscience, psychiatry, and pharmacology.
As we delve deeper into the relationships between neuropsychiatric illnesses and sleep, the conclusion that the two are entwined continues to be underscored. The 2020 Neuropsychopharmacology Reviews, “Sleep and neuropsychiatric illness,” edited by Dr. John W. Winkelman and Dr. Luis de Lecea, highlights what we know, what we do not, and what we’d like to know of the effect disturbances in sleep/circadian rhythms have on neuropsychiatric illness and the underlying neurobiological mechanisms. What is the role of sleep in maintaining a healthy brain?
