March 2016 - Special issue: Reshaping Clinical Science: Psychophysiology and the NIMH Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) Initiative
The March 2016 issue of the journal Psychophysiology will be a special one focused on NIMH’s Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) initiative. As special editors of the issue, Drs. Christopher Patrick and Greg Hajcak offer a fresh perspective on the initiative and a platform for discussion among researchers involved in RDoC-related research.

January 2016 - Special Issue: Diversity and Representation
This special issue is devoted to the illustration and discussion of three key demographic variables (sex/gender, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status) that have been shown to moderate associations between psychophysiological processes and behavior.
