Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Neuroinflammation defines the collective reactive immune response in the central nervous system (CNS) in response to injury, stress and disease. Inflammation of the CNS occurs with many diseases and disorders, particularly autoimmune such as multiple sclerosis (MS), neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) and myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibody-associated disease (MOGAD).

Recent technical advances allow scientists to go deeply into the characterization of the pathological mechanism of the neuroinflammatory disease of the central nervous system. In this context, the multiparametric approach using imaging mass cytometry (IMC) enables simultaneous detection of up to 30–40 antigens using metal-tagged antibodies resulting in cytometric data or two-dimensional imaging.

In this Special Issue, manuscripts reporting how the IMC promotes the understanding of pathological processes in neuroinflammation, and how those data generate new clinical approaches to neuroinflammation, particularly in multiple sclerosis are welcome. We aim at providing a collection of high-impact manuscripts dissecting the unknown or lesser-studied neuroinflammatory pathological processes through IMC that could lead to a new therapeutic approach to neuroinflammatory diseases. The final goal of this Special Issue is to help neuroscientists to reconsider their basic knowledge of neuroinflammation.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Neurology International 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 1600 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.
