Researchers in the neurosciences from the Rhine–Main area, in Germany, including the Universities of Mainz and Frankfurt and TU Darmstadt, the Max-Planck-Institutes for brain research and biophysics, IMB, FIAS and Ernst Strüngmann Institute have established the Rhine–Main Neuroscience Network (rmn^2) to enhance collaborative research in this field. Expertise in molecular-, cellular-, and systems neuroscience constitute the hallmark of rmn^2 (http://www.rmn2.de/).
The biennial meeting of the rmn² in Oberwesel 2018 brings together the neuroscience researchers of this area and renowned keynote speakers and particularly encourages PhD or MD students to present their projects to the neuroscience community. The topics of the meeting in 2018 were:
- Mechanisms of pain persistence and relief
- Gene regulatory mechanisms in brain development and function
- The neuroscience of autism spectrum disorder
- Synaptic plasticity and learning in neuronal networks
- Neurophysiology of cognitive functions
The Special Issue "rmn^2—Oberwesel 2018" invites all speakers and Top 10 Poster Presenters to contribute a concise review of the talk or concise introduction into the topic of the Poster. Hence, the Special Issue shall provide a collection of the meeting's highlights.

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. 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.
