Special Issue "Advancements in Neuroimaging Approaches for Brain Disorders"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2023 | Viewed by 9986
Brain disorders cover a wide spectrum of diseases associated with brain tissue damage, including neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis), brain injury, tumor, mental health disorders, etc. The underlying mechanisms of most of those diseases remain unclear, and researchers have been studying them for decades. Recent advancements in neuroimaging offer us new approaches to explore both structural and functional brain alterations. Those neuroimaging methods include but are not limited to functional MRI, diffusion tensor imaging, PET, and combinations of multiple imaging modalities. The information extracted from those imaging approaches is potentially valuable for early diagnosis, evaluation of treatment effects, and monitoring of pathology development in various brain disorders. In this Special Issue on “Advancements in Neuroimaging Approaches for Brain Disorders”, we aim to offer readers an overview of the latest research on how state-of-the-art neuroimaging methods benefit the clinical diagnosis and treatment of brain disorders.

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.
