We here review the literature on Child Behaviour Checklist-Dysregulation Profile (CBCL-DP) index, which potentially represents a developmental profile of major psychopathology in early adulthood. The understanding of the neural underpinnings of children and adolescents with altered regulation of affect and behaviour may ultimately help in planning strategies to prevent psychiatric syndromes during development.

This Section of Epidemiology and Psychiatric Sciences regularly appears in each issue of the Journal to describe relevant studies investigating the relationship between neurobiology and psychosocial psychiatry in major psychoses. The aim of these Editorials is to provide a better understanding of the neural basis of psychopathology and clinical features of these disorders, in order to raise new perspectives in every-day clinical practice.
