We are organizing a Special Issue entitled "Smart Electrical Circuits and Systems for Neural Interface" in MDPI’s Electronics journal, https://www.mdpi.com/journal/electronics. We invite researchers all around world to share great ideas and simulation/experiment data.
The nervous system is highly adaptive. If we can interface and communicate with the nervous system, we can guide neural adaptation in the proper direction for the desired human augmentation or rehabilitation. We can also guide neural adaptation in response to internal and environmental changes, because natural adaptation is often sub-optimal and results in undesirable secondary conditions. Electrical circuits and systems can favorably intervene in the operation of the nervous system, as the neural signal can be recorded and modulated electrically. The goal of favorable neural intervention can be achieved only when all components of the electrical neural interface work in harmony. The electrical neural interface can be composed of several electrical components, including but not limited to electrodes, neural amplifiers, filters, analog-to-digital converters, microprocessors, neural stimulators, power management, wireless power transfer, wireless transceivers, and antenna.
In this Special Issue, we would like to provide researchers with an overview of the current trends in electrical circuits and systems for neural interfaces. We hope that the high-quality papers we will collect and publish will provide a chance for all of us to review the current status of the electrical circuits and systems for neural interfaces and to consider the future of this field.

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. Electronics 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 1400 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.
