Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The first two volumes of the Special Issue about Epigenetics of the Nervous System were successful initiatives. (( and (

In the last few years, epigenetic modifications in the nervous system have proven to be fundamental for the correct development and function of the brain. It is well known that DNA methylation is associated with both learning and the development of several neurological disorders, including neurodegeneration.

This Special Issue will be focused on the epigenetic changes that take place in the nervous system, from adolescent development through adulthood. In addition to invited reviews, we welcome research and/or methods manuscripts of exceptional interest on the following topics:

  • Effect of epigenetic changes in neural stem cells;
  • Epigenetics and neuropathology;
  • Animal models for the study of the relationship between epigenetics and the nervous system;
  • Human neural pathologies and epigenetics.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Epigenomes is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1500 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.
