Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The complex architecture of brain networks serves as the foundation for cognitive functions and behaviors, with disturbances in these networks often leading to neurological disorders. The advent of advanced imaging technologies has marked a new era in neuroscience, enabling detailed visualization and analysis of brain structures and functions with an unparalleled level of precision. 

This Special Issue is dedicated to showcasing cutting-edge research that employs sophisticated imaging modalities, such as high-definition magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI (fMRI), and novel neuroimaging techniques, to dissect the neural correlates of neurological disorders. Our objective is to highlight studies that push the boundaries of our understanding of brain networks affected by disorders including, but not limited to, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy. Contributions are invited to explore innovative imaging approaches for identifying neural biomarkers, elucidating disease pathways, and developing targeted interventions. 

This issue aims to bridge the gap between advanced neuroimaging findings and their clinical implications, offering insights that could lead to enhanced diagnostic accuracy, personalized treatment strategies, and ultimately, improved quality of life for individuals affected by neurological conditions.

Dr. Edward Ofori

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. Brain Sciences 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.
