Neurological disorders often cause severe long-term disabilities with substantial day-to-day consequences. Deeper understanding of brain functioning has opened new perspectives for more integrative interventions, boosting the intrinsic CNS capabilities for behavioral restitution. Neurorehabilitation capitalizes on neuroplasticity that occurs throughout life. However, each patient has their own rhythm, and approaches need to be tailored instead of standardized. However, where are the frontiers and what are the limits for moving forward?
This Special Issue of Brain Sciences aims to gather innovative approaches for the neurorehabilitation of major neurological disorders. Authors are invited to submit cutting-edge research, reviews, and case reports addressing a broad range of studies related to this topic, for example, CNS targets eliciting neuroplasticity, endogenous and exogenous pharmacotherapy, enriched environments, new technologies for evaluation/treatment, ethical issues and innovation, adaptive versus maladaptive plasticity, identifying meaningful outcomes. Mainly, we aim to present original approaches in neurorehabilitation that may offer stable effects and increased autonomy.

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. Brain 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 2000 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.
