Sex is basic to life. Many sex and gender differences in psychopathology (affective disorders, psychotic disorders, substance dependence disorders, posttraumatic disorders and personality disorders) have been delineated. There are genetic and epigenetic differences between the two sexes at birth and, subsequently, men and women are exposed to different internal and external stressors and buffers over the course of the lifespan.
This issue aims to showcase the latest research trends in gender differences in psychopathology. We invite authors to report gender-related data in psychiatric diseases. Papers on epidemiology, cultural trends, hormones, genetics, epigenetics, brain imaging, gender-related stress exposure, drug response and aging are particularly welcome.
