Special Issue "Pathophysiology and Genetics of Movement Disorders"
A special issue of Brain Sciences (ISSN 2076-3425).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2017).
Movement disorders is one of the most clinically-oriented fields in Neurology. Clinical phenomenology remains an important aspect in diagnosis and treatment. Nevertheless, it is impossible to advance clinical sciences without progress in the basic sciences, particularly understanding in pathophysiology. Advances in the genomic era especially massively parallel sequencing provides tremendous insights to pathophysiology and clinical heterogeneity of movement disorders. The pathophysiology, genetics and clinical phenomenology are in fact the main three foundations that have provided positively feedforward advance of one another.
In this Special Issue on the “Pathophysiology and Genetics of Movement Disorders”, we would like to invite manuscripts on variety of topics related to these three main foundations of movement disorders: Pathophysiology, genetics, and clinical phenomenology. Thus, the coverage in this issue is broad. Works in either basic or clinical sciences are welcome. We hope that this Special Issue will be of interest for both basic scientists and clinicians working in the field of movement disorders. Bridging the gap between basic and clinical sciences by application of knowledge from bench to bedside to mitigate patients’ suffer is our primary common aim.
