The completetion of neuronal migration in the developing cerebral cortex is a key event in brain development for the correct establishment of the subsequent neural network. During the past decade or so, the research on the mechanisms of neuronal migration has advanced at a furious rate. Nevertheless, many questions still remain. It is of importance to summarize and share the accumulated knowledge and skills and to effectively utilize these moving forward with neuronal migration research.
The main purpose of the current Special Issue is to feature the mechanisms of neuronal migration in the developing cerebral cortex and the disorders caused by neuronal migration defects and to inspire further studies on the mechanisms of neuronal migration, as well as cortical development. To achieve this, we call for research articles or reviews related to neurodevelopment, including neuronal migration, cerebral cortical development, and disorders caused by neuronal migration defects. In addition, we are interested in a review article discussing the methods that have been used and will be used for the analysis of neuronal migration, including in utero electroporation and animal genetic approaches.

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.
