Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The process of development and adaptation requires safeguarding by potent antioxidant bioenergetic agents that allow us to maintain health and improve cognition by targeting and enhancing the neurovascular supply of bioenergetic resources for permanent repair, recycling and regeneration of the brain. Recent research on flavonoids demonstrates conclusively that brain health can be improved if neuroinflammation is successfully targeted and resolved. Future studies focusing on a research agenda that aims to target the master regulators of adaptational plasticity and developmental physiology can facilitate the progress of applied sciences by the use of such agents. Bioenergetic stimulation and trophic support result in structural and functional changes that enable the appropriate responses of the brain to any kind of demand and stress. The permanent bioenergetic decline is a hallmark of stress and senescence and can be corrected by sufficient mitochondrial protection that restores the decisive metabolic mechanisms that enable the restoration of cognition and health. The development of flavonoids that allow for neuroprotection has to focus on the metabolic mechanisms and mediators that prevent premature brain aging and disease. By your contributions to the development of applied neurosciences, we aim to demonstrate the perspectives for the application of advanced technologies using flavonoids that have the potential to prevent and cure dementia.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
