Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The cerebellum has a diverse array of functions, far beyond its typical role in motor control. Underlying this range of behavioural functions is the presence of distinct cerebro-cerebellar circuits. The cerebellum is known to receive inputs from a wide range of cortical areas and send outputs to many cortical regions.  Further, while the cerebellum is known to contain distinct regions that connect with different cortical areas, much less is known about its functional arrangement relative to the cortex.

The focus of this Special Issue will be to elucidate how cerebro-cerebellar circuitry underlies different motor and non-motor behaviours. The Special Issue will cover topics, including animal models, imaging, electrical stimulation, non-invasive neuromodulation, electric field modelling, behaviours, and diseases.

Dr. Alice Witney

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
