We the Editors in Chief have been selected to develop the most intensive compilation of current research into all related fields of diagnosis, neuroimaging, neurogenetics, neurobiology, neuroepigenetics, neuropsychopharamcology, nutrition, toxicology, treatment, prevention tactics and strategies for attenuation of relapse and enhancement of quality of life during recovery. Each paper following rigorous peer review will be a selected publication in an open access forum. Initially there will be four issues a year.
