About the Cover

Bipolar disorders (BD) are severe psychiatric diseases that contributed to a significant worldwide disease burden. The etiology of BD is unknown and clinical diagnosis and treatments are difficult. This special topic brings together review and insight on the treatment, administrative, and mechanism of BD. Two original studies report neuroimaging and genetic changes in BD patients. In the cover image, the circle is made up half of the brain tissue and half of the vascular tissue. In the middle of the circle, two tissues are connected by astrocytes to form the blood-brain barrier, which represents the possible neuroimmunology mechanism of the etiology in BD. The division of the circle adopts a structure that similar to Tai-Chi (Yin-Yang) so as to present the completely opposite domain of the clinical symptoms in patients with BD. The cranes represent the psychotic symptoms that BD patients may have. (Cover image provided by Zhiang Niu and Lvchun Cui)
