Special Issue Information
This special issue of "Effects of Physical Exercise on Human Physiology and Pathology" focuses on the acute, short-term, and long-term effects of exercise training on physiological responses and pathological changes in the human body. Fundamental knowledge in physiology and pathology in response to exercise is critical to constructing precise exercise prescriptions and training programs for specific populations, including individuals with cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, respiratory system diseases, cancer, and neurological problems (e.g., spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, cognitive function, Alzheimer's disease, etc.). While a variety of exercise strategies have demonstrated the health benefits of exercise, there is considerable scope to better understand the efficacy of novel and commonly used exercise modalities, including specific exercise mode and training techniques, as well as identifying optimal exercise dose parameters and training duration, cellular/molecular mechanisms, and functional outcomes.
This special issue is seeking original research (basic or multidisciplinary approaches) articles and reviews (narrative reviews, systematic reviews, meta-analysis) that focus on the acute, short-term, and long-term impacts of exercise training on human physiological responses and pathological changes. Topics of special interest include the following.

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. Biology is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2200 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.
