Neural Basis of Psychopathology, Addictions and Sleep Disorders Study Section [NPAS]

The Neural Basis of Psychopathology, Addictions and Sleep Disorders [NPAS] Study Section addresses the neurobiological bases and treatment of psychotic, behavioral, cognitive, emotional, addictive, sleep and eating disorders. NPAS covers a broad range of topics including structural, neuroimaging, functional, electrophysiological, genetic, biochemical, pharmacological, neuroanatomical, neuroendocrine, neurotoxicological, and neuropsychological aspects of these disorders. NPAS focuses on clinically-oriented research involving human subjects. Some molecular studies involving tissue samples from human subjects may be reviewed if include a significant clinical component.
