 Neurobiology has been a great interest of research in last few decades in the field of psychiatry. Day by day we are moving towards associating various psychiatric disorders to its point of origin related to structural neuro-anatomy of brain. Newer imaging modalities like Functional MRI, Positron emission tomography (PET) scan and Single photon emission tomography (SPECT) are being used more often by clinicians to assess the structural as well as functional neuroanatomical changes that are frequently associated with certain psychiatric disorders. This area has been under extensive research thus giving us insight into anatomical defects associated with disorders; Thus unraveling various evidences and explanations to the clinical symptomatology that occurs in a particular condition. As the research is progressing, slowly but surely we are moving towards evidence based answers to the way patients present and why as to certain behaviors are associated with its structural correlates.
