Neurotology is a specialty closely related to vestibular and ear diseases (Meniere’s disease, vestibular neuronitis, vestibular schwannoma, facial nerve paralysis, otosclerosis, otitis, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) and hearing disorders (tinnitus, hearing loss, deafness). The diagnosis and therapy of neurotological disorders are complex. The identification of biomarkers for neurotological disorders could help to better understand their underlying pathophysiological mechanisms, differential diagnosis, and response to therapy. In recent decades, clinical and biochemical markers, including imaging techniques and genetics, have emerged as promising tools for neurotology.
The current Special Issue of Brain Sciences aims to present the latest research on the role of clinical and biochemical markers for adult and pediatric neurotology.
Authors are invited to submit relevant original research and review papers.

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.
