Special Issue Information
Discovering a cure for high-grade gliomas (HGGs) remains one of the greatest unsolved problems in modern medicine. The crucial battles of every war are disputed in the periphery and, nowadays, the peritumoral zones (PTZ) of the HGGs, and this has received special scientific interest. Using T1w MRI, HGG was generally identified, from a radiological point of view, as an enhancing nodule (EN); however, in recent years, the FLAIR hyperintensity beyond the EN has attracted the attention of clinicians and scientists. It has been demonstrated that the cellular composition and molecular signatures of the HGG core, compared with infiltrative margins, are different. In this Special Issue, we aim to clarify the biological, pathological and therapeutical role of the peritumoral areas of HGGs that deepen the role of cross-talk between tumoral cells and the tumoral microenvironment (with particular focus on the cross-talk with the microglia) in the regulation of tumor growth, progression and invasion. Moreover, we aim to further investigate the diagnostic possibilities of studying the PTZ (advanced MRI, PET, etc.) and the new therapeutic approach on the PTZ (FLAIRectomy, supratotal resection guided by awake brain mapping, intraoperative MRI, intraoperative CT scan, and intraoperative fluorescence). For this Special Issue, we have encouraged the submission of original papers, reviews of the literature, and metanalyses.

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 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.
