Special Issue Information
Zebrafish and other fish models have been instrumental in revealing the underlying genetics and cell biology that orchestrate the development of the central nervous system. Combining the genetics and cell biology with recent developments in imaging technology, genome editing, compound libraries, genetically encoded physiological sensors and behaviour analysis have put fish models at the forefront of integrative neurosciences Fish models enable longitudinal studies from embryo to adult on how specific cells in central nervous system are produced contribute to the neural circuitry and shape specific behaviours. This special issue is focused on all aspects of neural development using fish models.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
