Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For some time, it has been known that neuroinflammation is a complex multicellular process that plays a central role in a variety of neurological diseases, including acute inflammation, such as bacterial meningitis, as well as chronic inflammation in the form of neurodegenerative diseases or psychiatric and immune-mediated disorders. Numerous findings indicate that neuroinflammation can promote the progression of these disorders. In particular, the function of glial cells (astrocytes and microglial cells), their activation, and also the connection with immigrated immune cells in the disease are of great interest. As a result, there has been an explosion of interest in neuroinflammation and in the tools available to study these processes in the brain.

This Special Issue seeks works covering a wide range of topics related to studies around acute or chronic neuroinflammation, which show the developments of new models or therapeutic approaches or the role of interesting factors or glial cells in various disorders.

The article, on the topic of your choice, can be not only in terms of comprehensive reviews but also original articles and other types.

Prof. Dr. Lars Ove Brandenburg
Guest Editor
