Individuals with neuropathologies face a variety of deficits that can significantly impact their daily lives. Neuromodulatory techniques have often been proposed as a method to limit these deficits, enhance neuroplasticity, and/or to act as neurorehabilitative tools. Two components of neuromodulation that are important to understand are the underlying physiology of these techniques and how that might be impacted in neurological populations, as well as methods through which the physiological and behavioral response to neuromodulation in neurological disorders can be optimized.
The aim of the current Special Issue is to gather the latest high-quality research on the use of non-invasive brain stimulation and other neuromodulatory methods in neurological disorders, with specific interest in movement disorders and stroke. Authors are invited to submit original research articles, reviews, or protocol papers outlining new and promising techniques. We are keeping our outlook broad and welcome submissions on a wide variety of techniques in any neurological population. This will enable us to put together a collection of work that will provide insight into the potential wide-ranging applicability of neuromodulation.

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.
