This special issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences is dedicated to research papers and review articles on our understanding of novel pathologic findings in central nervous system (CNS) diseases and their treatment. We recognize that this research theme covers a wide range of CNS disorders ranging from acute (stroke and traumatic brain injury) to chronic (neurodegenerative such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease), but highlight the underlying pathological manifestations of each disorder. We encourage authors to provide insights on future therapeutic targets that will abrogate these CNS disorders with emphasis on altering the pathologic symptoms. We envision that with this strategy of elucidating novel pathological observations associated with the CNS disease, one will gain a much deeper appreciation of the mechanisms of cell death, as well as to begin to advance innovative treatment interventions designed to arrest the early, subacute, and late phases of the disease onset and progression. The objective of this special issue is to bring together basic scientists, translational researchers, and clinicians who are major proponents of understanding and treating the pathologic brain environment after injury.
