Special Issue Information
Movement disorders including Parkinson’s disease (PD), essential tremor (ET), and dystonia are chronic neurodegenerative diseases that are increasingly prevalent, affecting many individuals around the world. Invasive and non-Invasive Brain Stimulation, including deep brain stimulation (DBS) and transcranial magnetic stimulations, are effective treatments for common movement disorders and have been used to modulate neural activity through the delivery of electrical stimulation to key brain structures. The long-term efficacy of stimulation in treating disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor has encouraged its application to a wide range of neurological and psychiatric 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 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.
