Animal modeling of human disease has a fundamental role in scientific studies aimed at explaining disease mechanisms and conducting pre-clinical studies on potential therapies. The careful selection of experimental models for complex pathologies, such as neurological diseases, becomes crucial for ensuring high-quality research outcomes. Consequently, the progress made in animal modeling and the introduction of new models in recent years have significantly contributed to our improved understanding of the principal disease mechanisms of the central nervous system. Numerous aquatic or terrestrial vertebrates, including wild type, transgenic, and mutant models, have been introduced over the past few decades. While the mouse model remains pivotal in central nervous system pathology research, other models such as the zebrafish have also demonstrated remarkable success. This Special Issue aims to explore the morpho-physiopathology and molecular pathways involved in neurological disorders, utilizing both established canonical models and emerging animal models. We invite submissions of full research articles and comprehensive review papers for this Special Issue. This Special Issue is assisted by our Topical Advisory Panel Member Dr. Kamel Mhalhel.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
