Special Issue Information
Individuals with alcohol use disorders (AUD) suffer from a wide range of interconnected cognitive and psychological problems. However, limited therapeutic possibilities are available for those individuals due to limited investigation of its underlying etiology. In addition, the severity of AUD is influenced by the level and duration of alcohol exposure, developmental stage, genetics, and gender. Interestingly, several recent studies have discovered the essential function of different receptors, neurotransmitters, growth factors, signaling, and epigenetic and genetic influence on gene expression changes that have a distinct role in alcohol abuse-related neurobehavioral impairments.
This Special Issue of Brain Sciences aims to present a collection of studies focussing on the most recent advancement in alcohol use-related disorders, including fetal alcohol-associated research. Authors are invited to submit cutting-edge reviews, original research articles, and meta-analyses of large existing datasets which advance the field towards a greater understanding of the etiology and pathogenic mechanism. The topics include, without limitation to, studies in epidemiology, neuropsychology, neurobehavior, neuropharmacology, epigenetics, genetics and genomics, brain imaging, molecular neurobiology, experimental model, and clinical investigation. The main format of the publication should be a full-length review or original article. However, other formats with reduced length could also be considered, such as brief reports, short note, communication, or commentary, as long as the manuscript presents innovative and perceptive content that suits the topic of this Special Issue.

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.
