Special Issue "Entropy Applications in EEG/MEG"
A special issue of Entropy (ISSN 1099-4300).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
Despite the combined efforts of scientists around the globe, the human brain remains the great unknown of the human body. Several exploratory techniques have been developed in the last decades to gain insight into its organization and functioning: functional magnetic resonance (fMRI), positron emission tomography (PET), near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and so on. Among these neuroimaging techniques, EEG and MEG are the only signals that record the synchronous oscillations of cortex pyramidal neurons directly and non-invasively.
In many studies, different signal processing methods (spectral measures, nonlinear methods, synchronization estimators, networks parameters, etc.) have been applied to EEG/MEG recordings to extract information about these complex signals. Entropy measurements are being increasingly used for this purpose. Typically, EEG and MEG have been analyzed using spectral entropies and embedding entropies. Spectral entropies (e.g. Shannon entropy, Tsallis entropy, and Renyi entropy) extract information from the amplitude component of the frequency spectrum, whereas embedding entropies (e.g. approximate entropy, sample entropy, and fuzzy entropy) are calculated directly using a time series. Recently, other entropy families have been proposed" instead of "Recently, other spectral families have been proposed. This Special Issue focuses on the application of entropy measurements to analyze and/or characterize the EEG and/or MEG activity at different physiological states and pathological conditions.

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. Entropy 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.
