Special Issue Information
Our understanding of how the brain functions has been improved by advances in modern invasive and noninvasive brain imaging, stimulation, and neuromodulation technologies. Advances in the monitoring, identification and quantification of biological analytes and phenomena using innovations that exist at the intersection of engineering, neuroscience, and information technology have grown at a tremendous pace in the last two decades thanks in part to the brain initiatives around the globe. Understanding the dynamics of neurochemicals (e.g., neuromodulators, neurotransmitters, or ionic concentrations) is essential to understanding brain function, and requires accurate, real-time quantification of brain structures and surrounding environment. This Special Issue invites articles that describe advances in biosensors to accelerate the development of knowledge regarding brain function, and, conversely, advances from insights into how the brain computes and learns to accelerate biosensor design. Having in mind the importance of minimally invasive techniques for monitoring brain chemistry in vivo, we are particularly interested in the development of novel biosensors that can simultaneously measure multiple biological analytes across spatiotemporal scales. We are also interested in brain-inspired biosensor design and the design of novel biosensing systems that will advance biomedical engineering, disability and rehabilitation engineering, neural engineering, neurophotonics, neurorobotics, and other high-impact engineering fields. We encourage papers with experimental results and validation.

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. Biosensors 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.
