Mind, Behavior, Biology, and Therapies

Psychopathology is a record of research centered on findings, concepts, and diagnostic categories of phenomenological, experimental, and clinical psychopathology. Studies published are designed to improve and deepen the knowledge and understanding of the pathogenesis and nature of psychopathological symptoms and psychological dysfunctions. Furthermore, the validity of concepts applied in the neurosciences of mental functions is evaluated in order to closely bring together mind and brain. Major topics of the journal are trajectories between biological processes and psychological dysfunction that can help us better understand a subject’s inner experiences and interpersonal behavior. Phenomenological and experimental psychopathology, neuropsychology, and neuroscience as well as developmental psychopathology and youth mental health contribute to this field.
