Special Issue "Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS): Applications in Clinical and Basic Neuroscience"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 February 2021.
Interests: transcranial magnetic brain stimulation; electroencephalography; motor control; motor learning; neuroplasticity; intracortical function; ageing; concussion
TMS represents one of the few techniques able to non-invasively assess and modulate neurophysiological function in human participants. While this technique was established within the motor domain, coregistration with other neuroimaging modalities (e.g., electroencephalography, functional magnetic resonance imaging, etc.) now means that TMS is utilised within broad, multidisciplinary areas of both basic and clinical neuroscience. Consequently, TMS methodology and technology is continuously evolving, resulting in an ever-growing potential for applications with functional relevance. The aim of this Special Issue is therefore to highlight novel and developing areas of TMS application in both health and disease. Research focused on neuroplasticity and intracortical circuitry are particularly encouraged. Studies aiming to better understand the neurophysiological processes underpinning both conventional and emerging methodologies are also appreciated. We invite contributions in the form of review articles and original research pieces.

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. 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 1600 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.
