Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Movement disorders caused by neurological diseases, such as stroke, Parkinson's disease, and degenerative spinocerebellar ataxia, can cause significant limitations in daily living. Neurorehabilitation is provided to reduce the burden associated with movement disorders, lessen the limitations in daily living activities, and enhance participation in the social sphere. To achieve progress in neurorehabilitation approaches, it is necessary to investigate the mechanisms of movement disorders, pathological hypotheses, and new intervention studies. For this Special Issue, we welcome research on a wide range of topics, including basic research that contributes to the elucidation of movement disorders, measurement technology to evaluate these disorders, new interventional research using neuromodulation techniques, and clinical research combining regenerative medicine and physiotherapy. We also welcome narrative analyses of single cases, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses regarding neurorehabilitation.
