In recent decades, clinical neurology and neuroscience have witnessed both marvelous advances and frustrating disappointments despite best efforts. The prognosis of some disorders has turned from dismal to (nearly) curable, whereas some diseases still lack treatment. Moreover, the etiology and pathomechanisms of a wide range of neurological disease remain uncertain—especially degenerative ones. This research theme covers a wide range of disorders affecting the nervous system, ranging from acute (strokes, traumatic brain injuries, infectious and autoimmune neurological diseases, etc.) to chronic (rare diseases, neurodegenerative disorders, autoimmune nervous system diseases, CNS tumors, etc.), as well as those in between (e.g., functional neurological disorders).
A collated Nordic perspective on these is expected to provide new insights. Nordic countries boast advanced welfare societies with equality and high-quality healthcare, although even they are affected by social and health disparities and uncertainty in this changing world. Advances and innovations in treatment protocols have been necessitated by low population densities and long distances and made possible by advanced public healthcare systems. Furthermore, the environment is quite different from where homo sapiens apparently originated, with populations small and often far apart. There are marked differences in the epidemiology of many diseases within Nordic countries as well as when compared to the rest of the world. These differences provide opportunities for etiological and pathogenesis research. All these research aspects are facilitated by Nordic high-quality registries.
This Special Issue aims to gather research that elucidates the current epidemiological landscapes, clinical pictures, pathological and genetic correlates, as well as treatment pathways and their outcomes in the Nordic region. We welcome original articles, reviews, and other acceptable types of articles We encourage authors to provide insights into the development status and research fronts of neurology, neuroepidemiology, and clinical neuroscience. We also welcome all suggestions of possible other authors for this theme issue.
