Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The prevalence of eurological disorders in pediatric patients is constantly increasing. Researchers and clinicians around the world have an obligation to continually update their knowledge.

The field of pediatric neurology often overlaps with the fields of psychiatric and neuropsychological. Furthermore, at a developmental age, problems in the neurological sphere can become real neurodevelopmental disorders given their important impact on all areas of the functioning of the young patient affected by them.

In this vision, it is necessary to take global responsibility for the patient, their pathology, and their his family; these factors can represent the difference between an effective rehabilitation path and a less than productive one.

New knowledge on the pathophysiology of neuropsychiatric disorders tends to transcend the conceptual separations between different clinical areas, making it easier to identify common mechanisms. Furthermore, there are numerous genetic pathologies with significant neurological disorders such as movement troubles, inattention and epilepsy.

Of particular interest will be demyelinating diseases, PANS, movement disorders, epileptic disorders, and all their comorbidities.

This Special Issue will provide an overview of the recent advancements, challenges, and perspectives in all aspects of pediatric neurology and novel means of conducting outcome assessments and making predictions. The applications of AI to support decision-making and therapeutic processes will be considered, as will the use of robotics in the rehabilitation of patients experiencing pediatric neurological diseases.

Researchers in this field are invited to submit original articles or reviews.
