With the rapidly increasing promise of cutting-edge neuroscience research to reach translational success, biosensing and neuromodulation technologies have seen rapid and significant innovation. Among the key innovations driving new research and future therapies is the development of implantable, wireless tools to interact with the nervous system. Implantable systems enable proximal access to biological signal sources and offer high spatial and temporal resolution of signals with a quality that cannot be matched by other modalities. Additionally, cellular-level optical functional imaging can further help in dissecting neural circuits by recordings from genetically targeted neuronal types. However, these systems present significant technological challenges (e.g., miniaturization, biocompatibility, high-speed yet low-power data communication, wireless power transfer, and hermeticity)—challenges which continue to inspire biosensor researchers to exploit multi-disciplinary knowledge to push the limits of the field.
This Special Issue will gather advances highlighting novel device development and original work on implantable biosensors and biodevices for neuroscience research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, implantable microsystems for biosensing; multichannel electrical, optical or chemical electrodes and sensors; bio-interrogation devices; wireless power and data transfer for implantable neurosensors and modulators; low-power and miniaturized electronics for neural data processing; as well as cutting-edge applications of the aforementioned techniques.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biosensors 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 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
