Neurological diseases are the result of neurodegenerative processes, neuroinflammation and/or physical trauma to the central or peripheral nervous system. Patients affected by neurological diseases frequently develop comorbidities like motor impairment and neuropathic pain, which can be more debilitating than the primary neurological condition. Whilst understanding the aetiology of the neurological disease is imperative, clarifying the pathophysiological mechanisms of the associated comorbidities is progressively becoming a prioritized area. Exploring the mechanisms underlying the associated motor and sensorial dysfunctions represents a unique opportunity to gain new insights on the neurological disease, and may be the next logical step for the development of more effective therapeutical strategies. In this Special Issue, “Motor Impairment and Neuropathic Pain in Patients with Neurological Diseases: Pathophysiological Mechanisms and Potential Treatment Options” authors are encouraged to submit original research papers and/or current reviews focused on the pathophysiological mechanisms of motor impairment and/or neuropathic pain in neurological diseases and on currently available treatment options.

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 Functional Morphology and Kinesiology is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
