Mitochondria play a major role in the regulation of cellular bioenergetics as well as various non-energetic processes, like cell death mechanisms, generation of free radicals and antioxidative defense, immune response, and regulation of calcium homeostasis. Therefore, abnormal mitochondria signaling may be an important link between various disease-associated factors common to, and critical in, different central nervous system (CNS) diseases: from neurodevelopmental disorders, that occur early in life and persist until adulthood, to age-related neurodegenerative diseases. Understanding the exact position of mitochondrial dysfunction in the deleterious feed-forward loop critical for the development and progression of CNS diseases may help design successful therapeutic strategies for several fatal syndromes.
In this Special Issue, we cordially invite you to contribute, either in the form of original research articles, or reviews on all aspects related to the topic, describing mechanistic, functional, cellular, biochemical, or general aspects of mitochondrial dysfunction in neurological disorders. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
- Maternal immune activation
- Epigenetic factors
- Misfolded protein spread
- Glial pathology
- In vitro and in vivo models
- Translational medicine

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. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2700 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.
