    Neuroimaging has played an increasingly important role in understanding neurobiological mechanisms of normal and aberrant human behaviors, as well as in potential treatments of psychiatric disorders. In particular, integrated neuroimaging studies of humans and preclinical models may provide significant advantages to identify and verify imaging biomarkers that would lead to more efficacious treatment for psychiatric diseases. In this presentation, the value of forward-translational (from animal models to clinical studies) and backward-translational (from clinical studies to animal models) will be discussed, and our latest research findings in this direction will be demonstrated. Optimal treatment strategies using brain modulation techniques such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) will be presented.
