Severe injury to the nervous system is mostly irreparable to the living body, leading to permanent loss of related motor and sensory functions. Regeneration and/or repair of the nervous system is a process, which undergoes regrowth or renewal of damaged nervous tissue, whereas the process differs between the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and central nervous system (CNS). However, both processes should be including the regeneration of axons, synapses, neurons and glial/Schwann cells, and perineurium/endoneurium, as well as vascular system, which play a role for oxygen/nutrition supply and exclusion of wastes.

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. Journal of Clinical Medicine 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 1800 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.
