The goal for this special edition of Progress in Brain Research extends beyond merely probing the yet-to-be-uncovered links between physical exercise and cognitive improvement. We aim to advance our knowledge, pushing the envelope of what is currently understood. We are particularly focused on how purposefully structured physical activities, carefully chosen participant groups, and specific cognitive areas can optimize the cognitive and mental health benefits derived from physical exercise. The inaugural volume of this series introduces 3 review articles and 7 original pieces of research, encompassing both behavioral experiments and neuroimaging studies. Our focus is on experimental research that sheds light on the immediate and long-term impact of physical exercise on cognition as well as expert opinions and systematic reviews that compile current findings and suggest avenues for upcoming research.

Understanding and Treating Anorexia Nervosa: A Biopsychosocial Approach offers a new evidence-based intervention for anorexia nervosa that accounts for strange symptoms. The book provides an intervention that is more accurately tailored to the three phases (biological, psychological and social) of interventions observed in this disorder. The book's chapters walk the reader through motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy, and other clinical techniques to help tailor therapeutic work to specific challenges. Written by Dr. Shan Guisinger, a leading expert in the field, this book will be the main treatment guide for treating anorexia nervosa. Treating anorexia nervosa (AN) can be one of the hardest job clinicians face. People with AN fear eating despite being seriously underweight and experiencing hallucinations. Current interventions lack options to address such non-traditional symptoms ultimately resulting in relapse.

Anatomy of Neuropsychiatry: The New Anatomy of the Basal Forebrain and Its Implications for Neuropsychiatric Illness, Second Edition, builds upon reprised classic chapters by Lennart Heimer and Gary Van Hoesen describing the cortical and subcortical structure and functional involvements of several functional–anatomical macrosystems in the human forebrain, the existence of which obviates the vaunted heuristic value of the “limbic system” concept in the study of motivation and emotion. New narrative brings in important historical, philosophical, and histotechnical contexts, integration with novel technologies (e.g., optogenetics) and structures (e.g., rostromedial tegmental nucleus), a deeper dive into the interactions of forebrain and prospective cerebellar macrosystems with the reticular core of the brain, and current viewpoints on the essential role of macrosystems in motion, motivation, emotion, cognition, and neuropsychiatric well-being.
