The failure of clinical trials in Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease highlights the need to find alternative mechanisms of induction of these diseases. It is clear that beta-amyloid does not cause Alzheimer's disease and alpha-synuclein may not cause Parkinson's disease. In addition, newly discovered endocannabinoid-like molecules may provide new clues about the causes of autism, multiple sclerosis, and other CNS diseases.
This Special Issue aims to collect state-of-the-art breakthroughs including but not limited to the following topics:
- Blood brain barrier;
- Vascular permeability;
- Immune system activation;
- Oxidative stress;
- Endocannabinoids and endocannabinoid-like molecules;
- Alzheimer’s disease;
- Parkinson’s disease;
- Multiple sclerosis.
