Psychiatric and neurological disorders have substantial overlap and comorbidity. The goal of breaking conceptual boundaries between neurology and psychiatry is the basis for The Year in Neurology and Psychiatry. In this second issue, a wide range of topics are covered, including the development of therapies for spinal muscular atrophy; neuromyelitis optica and the evolving spectrum of autoimmune aquaporin-4 channelopathies; the convergence of stroke imaging, precision medicine, and the collaterome at the intersection of data science in neurovascular disciplines; clinical exome sequencing in neurogenetic and neuropsychiatric disorders; advances in the genetics of schizophrenia; innovative approaches to bipolar disorder and its treatment; and neuroscience-informed computer-assisted cognitive training in schizophrenia.
