Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Neuronal demise occurs in many different settings—during development, as a result of acute traumatic or ischemic injury, and along the course of neurodegenerative diseases. Multiple mechanisms and cellular pathways, both generic and neuron-type-specific, contribute to neuronal death. On the other hand, axotomized neurons or those suffering otherwise from some form of somatic impairment might survive and regenerate. In particular, the regrowth of axons, re-myelination, and reinnervation are all processes in which enhancement would be of obvious clinical benefit.

For this Special Issue of Cells on ‘’Neuronal death and regeneration’’, we invite the submission of original research articles and reviews on neuronal/glial demise and regeneration in the central, peripheral, and enteric nervous systems. Manuscripts with significant depth and insight into cellular, genetic/epigenetic, and biochemical/physiological mechanisms and pathways are particularly welcomed.
