Brain imaging, providing a way to non-invasively map the structure and function of the brain, has developed significantly in recent years. Take functional brain imaging as an example: the advent of functional brain imaging, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), has sparked excitement over its potential to revolutionize researchers' understanding of the brain’s physical basis. Additionally, it offers a powerful tool that assists in understanding how the brain adapts to various cognitive activities and tasks. Besides, structural brain imaging, such as diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), enables researchers to model brain structural connections by computation and reveal the underlying mechanisms in various neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders.
Various neurobehavioral and neuropsychiatric deficits such as delusion, hallucination, agitation, aggression, dysphoria, depression, anxiety, euphoria, apathy, disinhibition, irritability, aberrant motor activity, appetite change, sleep disorders, psychosis, and cognitive impairments are observed among patients with neurodegenerative diseases. Advances in neuroimaging techniques can expand current knowledge on the structural, functional, and microstructural basis of these disorders. This Special Issue intends to capture recent advances and findings regarding the Neuroimaging correlate of Neurobehavioral and Neuropsychological Alterations in Neurodegenerative diseases in order to establish a compendium of work capable of informing.
