From Ramon y Cajal and Golgi’s histological techniques to single-cell RNA sequencing, technological innovations have long driven progress in the neurosciences. We are entering an era in which new technologies have the power not only to help us understand the inner workings of the brain or to treat the symptoms of the diseases that plague it but also to restore function to those affected by disorders of the central nervous system. From individualized network-based neuromodulatory therapies for neurologic and psychiatric disease, to brain–computer interfaces to restore movement in quadriplegics and to restore vision for the blind, cognitive prosthetics for dementia and learning disabilities, seizure-detecting responsive neurostimulators, augmented reality headsets to help neurosurgeons locate brain tumors and wearable electric field-generating devices to help limit their growth, and many more—today’s rich technological landscape is changing the way we think about maintaining and increasing neurological well-being.
This Special Issue explores some of the technologies that have allowed interdisciplinary teams of neurosurgeons, neurologists, and psychiatrists to revolutionize the approach to treatment-refractory neurologic and psychiatric disease. We examine the latest applications of these techniques, including the potential not only to restore but to augment nervous system function and improve the quality of life for patients who have exhausted traditional therapies.

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.
