The Society for Brain Mapping and Therapeutics is a non-profit organization that encourages scientists in areas of brain mapping, engineering, stem cells, nanotechnology, imaging, and medical devices to improve the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with neurological disorders. SBMT promotes public welfare, improving patient care through the translation, the development and use of new technologies and therapies as life-saving diagnostics and treatments. By encouraging the publication and dissemination of research in ways that accelerate the discovery of therapies suitable for commercialization for neurological disorders, the society seeks to advance personalized, precise, and effective patient care. SBMT pursues this mission through a commitment to excellence in education, multidisciplinary discovery and outreach to government agencies, patient advocacy groups, educational institutes, and philanthropic organizations.

One challenge of the twenty-first century is to catalyze the development of medical advances from basic science. To help accelerate diagnostic and therapeutic discoveries, SBMT brings together clinicians, scientists, engineers, and policy makers from multiple disciplines who share this aspiration of improving patient care. The organization believes this strategy is essential to bring about advances in neurosurgery, radiology, neurology, and clinical psychiatry.

The NeuroMapping and Therapeutics Collection contains a selection of articles published in PLoS ONE that are representative of the aims and scope of SBMT. Articles are presented in order of publication date and new articles will be added to the collection as they are published. PLoS ONE and SBMT welcome submissions within this field.
