Deadline for manuscript submissions: 8 January 2024 | Viewed by 3688

In recent years, neuro-ophthalmology has witnessed significant advances in the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects. Neuro-ophthalmology has come a long way from a specialty that “admires disease” to one that employs sophisticated and highly-technological tools for early diagnosis and evidence-based guidelines in management. In addition, our understanding of many common neuro-ophthalmic conditions has changed and evolved over the years. Treatment of some genetic neuro-ophthalmic conditions such as Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy using gene therapy is in ongoing trials.
This Special Issue of Brain Sciences will focus on recent advances in neuro-ophthalmology and will cover the specialty's state-of-the-art trends and current research advances. Authors are kindly invited to submit manuscripts that will address a broad range of topics including: optic neuritis (MS, MOG, NMO), idiopathic intracranial hypertension, the use of optical coherence tomography in neuro-ophthalmic (optic neuropathies and disc drusen) and neurologic diseases, diagnosis and treatment of Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy, emerging therapeutic options for thyroid eye disease and other inflammatory orbital disorders, and innovative medical and surgical therapeutic options for various neuro-ophthalmic conditions.

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.
