Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Research in Neuroscience has never been so active, taking benefits from recent developments in functional imaging, molecular biology and transgenesis, or improvements in animals’ cognitive behavioral analyses. Paradoxically, validation of new therapeutic strategies and marketing of really innovative medicine against pathologies with major social issues like Alzheimer’s disease and related neurodegenerative disorders, ischemic insults, depression, or schizophrenia mark time and do not find way out in a near future. Drug development pipelines of pharmaceutical companies remain alarmingly empty.
This combined Special Issue of Molecules and Pharmaceuticals, on Neuroactive Compounds, will offer an unique forum to present the chemistry, pharmacology and therapeutic opportunities offered by new and innovative molecular series in all areas of neuropharmacology and neuroscience. I strongly encourage authors to submit papers for this special issue, within the scope of Molecules and Pharmaceuticals, and I hope that the fields covered will allow to rise our hopes in seeing soon the validation of breakthrough treatments in central pathologies of major concern.
