Applied neuroimaging is a relentlessly developing field of radiology with both clinical and research applications. Recent years have seen an explosion in high-impact neuroscience papers capitalising on advanced neuroimaging techniques to test study hypotheses. The quantitative pipelines of a range of open-source and commercial software enable the meticulous evaluation of physiological and pathological processes and have been implemented across a spectrum of neurological and psychiatric conditions. Despite the differences in specific imaging techniques, the shared inspiration of applied imaging studies is the detection, characterisation and critical interpretation of subtle pathological changes in vivo complementing clinical observations, supporting prevailing views on disease mechanisms and often tracking changes longitudinally. Seminal papers in recent years have captured presymptomatic changes in mutation carriers, revealed propagation patterns in neurodegenerative conditions, confirmed treatment effects in clinical trials and invariably contributed novel academic insights. The objective of this special issue is to attract manuscripts from diverse neurological and psychiatric conditions to showcase the potential of applied imaging in research and clinical setting.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on theInstructions for Authorspage. Journal of Integrative Neuroscience is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by IMR Press.
