Interests: investigating immune dysfunction; pro-inflammatory changes and immunosenescence during aging
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Immune system dysfunction is known to contribute to the pathogenesis and severity of brain disorders. Impairments in the production of pro-inflammatory mediators, as well as in the secretion of chemokines regulating the migration of immune cells, have been associated with a broad spectrum of brain disorders, including neurodevelopmental disorders, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s diseases, and brain tumors. Furthermore, pro-inflammatory molecules may impair brain physiology during aging, therefore contributing to age-related dementia. The aim of this Special Issue is therefore to describe the role of inflammation in the pathogenesis and severity of brain disorders. In addition, manuscripts which aim to discuss the contribution of brain damage to the onset of pro-inflammatory conditions are welcome.
