In this paper, a new concept of Ciric-Kannan -$\alpha-\psi$-contractions in the setting of $F $-metric space is introduced. Using this idea, endowed with suitable hypotheses, some fixed point theorems for such mappings in $F $-complete $F $-metric space are established. As an application, an existence condition for a solution of nonlinear neutral differential equations is investigated to show the usability of our obtained results.
