Special Issue "Cellular Plasticity of the Neuromuscular System"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2023 | Viewed by 7194
Interests: neuromuscular; exercise; disuse; skeletal muscle; aging
The neuromuscular system is large—comprising ~40% of the body’s entire mass—and vital to our health and well-being. It allows movement, including health-related exercise, as well as normal, yet necessary, activities of daily living. This system is capable of considerable cellular remodeling as a result of natural post-natal development, and aging-related deterioration. Moreover, even in healthy adults significant remodeling of the myofibers, motor neurons, and neuromuscular junctions that these cells join together to form has been demonstrated with scientific inquiry. For example, changes in activity, whether increases via exercise, or decreases, i.e. disuse, elicit significant neuromuscular remodeling. In this special issue of Cells, recognized experts of the neuromuscular system will address cellular remodeling of that system, and how it affects the health and function of the whole organism.

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.
