Special Issue Information
Childhood experiences build the foundations for the rest of our lives. Reasoning, recalling information, solving problems, and controlling and regulating emotions and behaviors are tasks that depend on cognitive abilities that are developed through life, but whose foundations are laid in the early years. Among them, the most essential ones are executive functions, a set of purposeful, goal-directed capabilities that can be fostered by proper activities.
In this Special Issue, we explore the most current strategies to measure and promote the development of executive functions in real-life scenarios, both at behavioral and brain levels. The mind is not static. Cognitive capabilities change (and can be changed), and a child who is properly stimulated will have better tools to deal with his/her education, and to be better prepared as an adult integrated in society. We need to know what works better, and why.

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 2000 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.
