This is a collection of peer-reviewed articles published in the "Windows to the Brain" series in the official Journal of the American Neuropsychiatric Association (ANPA). ANPA describes themselves as a “premier North American organization of clinicians, scientists, and educators specializing in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry, neuropsychology, and clinical neurosciences”. Dr. Robin Hurley, VISN 6 MIRECC Associate Director, Education; Dr. Katherine Taber, VISN 6 MIRECC Assistant Director, Education (retired) and Dr. Wilfredo López-Ojeda, VISN 6 MIRECC Assistant Director, Education (current) are the main contributing authors.

These articles summarize and synthesize important information on varied content relevant to the following themes: understanding the neuroanatomical correlates of neuropsychiatric disorders, use of current and emerging neuroimaging techniques to understand neuropsychiatric illnesses, and clinical presentations of central nervous system disturbances, particularly pertinent to post-deployment mental health and Veterans issues.
