Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The neurotransmitter dopamine plays crucial roles within the central nervous system, influencing multiple neural pathways and associated behaviors such as locomotion, reward mechanisms, neuroendocrine control, and emotion, to name but a few. Dysfunction of dopamine systems, including degeneration of dopamine neurons, are associated with numerous diseases. Some of the medications used to treat these diseases act by altering the effects of dopamine. This Special Issue on “Dopamine in Health and Disease” will present a selection of original research papers or reviews that address such topics as cellular mechanisms of disease affecting dopaminergic systems, genetic influences on dopamine neuron health and function, animal models of dopamine neurons loss and regeneration, and novel therapeutics for pathologies that involve dopamine neurons.

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. Biomedicines 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 2600 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.
