Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Headaches are common problems in daily clinical practice that is encountered by family physicians, neurologists and neurosurgeons. Nearly 90% of men/women have at least one type of headache in each year. Most of these patients can experience recurrent headaches. According to the International Headache Society, migraine with and without aura, tension headaches and cluster headaches constitute most primary headaches. Secondary headaches are symptoms of any organic diseases. There are many researches about headache; however, there is still a gap in this field. Particularly, mechanism of the headache attacks, the relationship with other neurological disorders, the role of genetic, effect on daily life and quality of life.The number of invasive procedures and the use of new technological achievements in medicine are increasing. The neuropediatric field, which may superficially be regarded as a particular and a separate discipline, is also rapidly evolving. This is an essential part of both routine and experimental clinical practice, as well as an important area of preclinical research. Besides, the knowledge of neuropaediatrics is becoming a crucial part of medical training curriculum. This special issue cannot hope to offer a complete coverage of neuropaediatrics, a specialty in its own right. Our route map will endeavour to cover some of the most significant areas in the preclinical and clinical medicine, including basic science and preclinical research, and everyday topics, such as neurotrauma, neurooncology, infections, congenital anomalies, as well as epilepsy, spasticity and neurorehabilitation. We hope that these selected topics will encourage a greater accessibility and understanding of the neuropediatric knowledge and will provide useful information for clinicians and researchers in this particular field.
