Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A better characterization of central nervous system (CNS) tissue damage in pathological conditions can be obtained integrating information arising from several imaging techniques. The visualization of structures with different contrast, resolutions, and 3D stacks of images enriches our understanding of diseases in the CNS. Moreover, interesting improvements can be achieved by combining different imaging techniques. This Special Issue of Brain Sciences aims to present a collection of studies detailing the most recent advancements in neuroimaging multimodal approaches, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), microscopy techniques, or X-ray techniques, among others, as well as recent developments in new algorithms for integrating imaging modalities and data analysis.

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.
