Editorial: Linking Emotional and Behavioral Dysregulation in Adolescents to Regulatory Cortex

A major goal of psychiatric neuroscience is to identify brain regions and circuits that underlie clinical phenomena towards more precise understanding of their nature and treatment.1 These are early days in this effort, especially for pediatric mental health, but already there is evidence that brain changes may herald psychosis in youth at genetic risk for schizophrenia2 or response to therapy in youth with anxiety.3 Elucidating these brain-behavior relationships requires one to identify a clinically meaningful phenotype and associate it with specific brain regions or circuits that plausibly underlie the phenotype.
