Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Clinical neurophysiology includes a large number of examinations that can study the function of and quantify the damage to the nervous system. These tests are extremely useful to support the diagnosis of many diseases of neurological and rehabilitation interest. Additionally, clinical neurophysiology can assist the general management of a patient, providing important information about the disease evolution and the response to the therapy. Finally, it can be applied to study patients affected by diseases not directly related to the nervous system. Aside from these, intraoperative monitoring represents another important field of neurophysiological application to support the delicate surgical interventions involving the brain of the spine.

The current special aims to explore clinical neurophysiology from different points of view, from the cellular basis to rehabilitation, with a specific interest in recent innovations, including new technical procedures, new applications, automatizations, and integration with other exams.

Different types of papers (reviews, trials, case reports) are welcome for this Special Issue. We ask for the Authors to submit papers about human subjects which deal with the clinical applications of different neurophysiological examinations. We encourage the submission of papers concerning the use of neurophysiological tests for the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of diseases involving different human systems.

The following topics are suggested:

- History of clinical neurophysiology with a specific focus on the new developments;

- Physiological basis of neurophysiological tests;

- Limitations and evolution of clinical neurophysiology;

- Evaluation of pain and autonomous nervous system;

- Clinical neurophysiology in central nervous system diseases;

- Clinical neurophysiology in peripheral nervous system diseases;

- Clinical neurophysiology in myopathies;

- Clinical neurophysiology in orthopedic and rheumatologic diseases;

- Clinical neurophysiology and Oncology;

- Clinical neurophysiology and cardiopulmonary disability;

- Clinical neurophysiology and Rehabilitation;

- Utility of clinical neurophysiology to guide the therapeutic decisions;

- Treatment based on neurophysiological techniques;

- Association with other medical techniques (imaging, lab tests, biopsy, etc.);

- Neurophysiological examination in the pediatric population;

- Neurophysiological examination in the geriatric population.

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. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
