Featured article: Application of transcranial direct current stimulation to psychiatric disorders

Growing attention is paid to transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) as a novel neuromodulation method in the treatment of psychiatric illnesses. In spite of its simple procedure, electrophysiological influence of tDCS is complex and not fully understood, and its procedure and clinical application is yet to be established. To address this issue, our Editorial Board member Tomiki Sumiyoshi reviews and summarizes reports currently available, and proposes future directions.

Aims and scope

Neuropsychiatric Electrophysiology is the first fully open access journal focussed on the investigation of electrophysiological aberrations in neuropsychiatric disorders, in conjunction with various diagnostic and therapeutic electrophysiological techniques. Supported by an internationally renowned expert Editorial Board, Neuropsychiatric Electrophysiology facilitates the fast publication of high quality research on the growing field of neuro-evaluative technologies and their impact on the diagnosis and management of psychiatric disorders. NPEP is an ideal venue for efforts to combine the power of the various techniques within electrophysiology, including electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), event-related potentials (ERPs) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). NPEP is a useful source for educators and also practicing clinicians as it publishes case reports where the advancing technology has impacted the diagnosis and management of actual clinical cases.

About the Editor

Nash N. Boutros is Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Neurosciences at the University of Missouri in Kansas City (UMKC). Dr. Boutros is board certified in Psychiatry (Illinois State Psychiatric Institute), Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology (University of Illinois, Chicago). Dr. Boutros’s main research interest is in the utilization of electrophysiological techniques, including EEG, ERPs, sleep studies and transcranial magnetic stimulation, in probing the neuropathophysiology of major psychiatric disorders. He has been faculty at the University of Texas (San Antonio and Houston), The Ohio State University, Yale University and Wayne State University. His work has resulted in upward of 180 peer-reviewed journal articles.
