Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to present original papers and reviews focused on novel pathophysiological and therapeutical approaches in neurodegeneration. The leading cause of dementia is Alzheimer's disease; however, the main goal is to collect insight also from other CNS diseases that share in common the final death of neuronal cells and the failure of neuronal networks. The importance of non-neuronal cells (glial, endothelial cells), extracellular matrix, and novel therapeutical approaches revealing the resilience and the failure of the system are among the main frontiers to be discovered. Clinical research, diagnostic tools, and prognostic factors with novel paradigms are also welcome in our Special Issue.

Dr. Ciro De Luca
Guest Editor
