Special Issue "Neural Sensing and Interfacing Technology"
A special issue of Biosensors (ISSN 2079-6374).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2016).
Interests: Over the years, we have observed tremendous growth in the research of measuring neural signals, understanding brain activity and the nervous system, and interfacing them with the outside world. We have already witnessed the impact of the rapidly advancing technologies on human life in widespread areas.
This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for discussion, in a broader context, of neural sensing and interfacing methods, important refinements, and new approaches addressing major challenges and methodological improvements. We are interested in papers including all aspects of contemporary research, including (1) materials, devices, and systems, (2) invasive and non-invasive applications, (3) experimental, analytical, and computational studies, (4) in vivo and in vitro experiments, and (5) neurochemical, organelle, cellular, tissue, and animal and human level investigations. Even though this Special Issue discusses a broad range of neural sensing and interface technologies, we will not consider papers that exclusively deal with neuro-modulation research, such as neuro-stimulation, functional electrical stimulation, deep brain stimulation, optogenetic stimulation, and prostheses.
The keywords include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Principles: electrical, optical, magnetic, mechanical, thermal, electrochemical, biochemical, electromechanical
- Technology and methodology: materials, nanotechnology, microfabrication, neural sensors, neural probes, optrodes, functional near infrared spectroscopy, sensor fabrication, neural interface, sensing system, signal processing, microelectrode array, MEMS, microfluidics, micro total analysis systems, lab-on a chip, brain computer/machine interface, analytical, computational
- Target applications: invasive, non-invasive, central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, neural network, unit spike, multi-unit activities, local field potentials, neurotransmitters, neurochemicals, hemodynamic, organelle, cellular, tissue, animal, clinical, in vivo, in vitro, acute, chronic

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 papers will be 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 1800 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.
