Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Alterations in nervous system functioning as a result of environmental factors, pharmaceuticals, genetic variability, and health status remain an issue of concern for human health.  Recent advancements have been made in our understanding of common biological processes related to neurotoxicity associated with disease states and age-related or genetic vulnerabilities.  These advances have been possible due to the ability to examine molecular aspects underlying neurodevelopment, neurodegeneration, and associated processes of neurotoxicity.  The integration of this molecular data into the field of neurotoxicology, as it applies to the broad spectrum of environmental exposure now offers a mechanistic framework for understanding the dynamics of neurotoxicity.  Further work on epigenetic mechanisms associated with nervous system functioning, e.g., learning and memory, provide additional mechanisms by which regulation of the nervous system can be altered by environmental exposure or by which events occurring during early life stages can influence responses later in life.  This special issue will focus on the integration of molecular events and their regulation with cellular and functional changes within the nervous system representative of neurotoxicity as they occur with exposure to xenobiotics and pharmaceutical agents as well as health status.   We are seeking novel research and/or review articles highlighting 1) the variety of molecular signals and integrated networks that underlie adverse responses in the nervous system, 2) how these alterations in molecular signaling translate to alterations in the structure or function of the nervous system (biochemical, physiology, behavior), 3) molecular events occurring during early life that can shift susceptibility in the adult, 4) epigenetic regulatory events as they contribute to neurotoxicity.

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 monthly 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 1600 CHF.
