Objectives: The goal of this study was to assess the current state and trends in neuroimaging for depression over the last four decades, using bibliometric analysis to give researchers fresh ideas for the future study area.
Methods: The Web of Science Core Collection was used to pull papers about neuroimaging for depression published between 1992 and 2021. We utilized the included articles to look at data on neuroimaging and depression publications, countries, institutions, cited journals, cited authors, cited references, keywords, and citation bursts.
Results: From 1992 to 2021, 5153 publications were pulled. In these last four decades, we selected the most prestigious journals, countries, institutions, and authors in neuroimaging modalities in depression. The keyword "major depression disorder" came in first for research discoveries with the most elevated citation burst. "Neuroimaging," "depression," "bipolar," "unipolar," and "anxiety" were the five hot themes in neuroimaging on depression.
Conclusions: The findings of this bibliometric analysis provide insight into current research patterns in neuroimaging for depression, as well as the present status and trends of the last four decades, which may aid investigators in determining the field's current status hotspots, and frontier tendencies.
