Aims and scope

Journal of Molecular Psychiatry publishes scientific work focusing on the elucidation of the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying neuropsychiatric disorders. Expanding the traditional approach of biological psychiatry using advanced techniques of molecular biology, neuroimaging, behavioural biology, regenerative medicine and psychopharmacology, the journal disseminates state-of-the-art research focusing on psychiatric conditions, their diagnosis, therapy and prevention. The journal is aimed at both researchers and clinicians, and also has a special focus on translational research bridging basic and clinical research and aims to exploit fundamental findings in the field of neuroscience for neuropsychiatric practice, in order to improve patient care.
