Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Neuro-rehabilitation is a broad medical field that includes the diagnosis, treatment and management of several diseases affecting the neuromuscular system, from the brain to the extreme body periphery. These diseases are associated with varying degrees of limitations and restrictions. The aim of rehabilitation is to overcome or reduce these handicaps.

The clinical effects of neuro-rehabilitation are well known and the positive outcomes have been widely reported in the literature. However, the basic research and neurophysiological variations related to rehabilitation programs deserve specific, in-depth analyses. In particular, the neuromuscular system can be studied with several objective outcome measures. These measures can also be applied to plan rehabilitation projects, to measure patient improvement after the administration of rehabilitation programs, and to define forecasting and organizational models.

This Special Issue will focus on basic research (molecular mechanisms, cellular effects, animal models) and on the application of various neurophysiological investigations for different conditions managed by neuro-rehabilitation. Special attention will be paid to the following outcome measures and diseases:

• Electroencephalography
• Evoked potentials
• Nerve conduction studies
• Electromyography
• Computed motion analysis
• Neuromuscular imaging
• Animal models
• Biomarkers of neuromuscular damage
• Genetic and epigenetic analysis of neuromuscular damage
• Molecular and cellular biology of neuromuscular damage
• Brain injuries
• Spinal cord injuries
• Radiculopathies, plexopathies and neuropathies
• Myopathies
• Autonomic dysfunctions
• Pain syndromes
• Sensory-motor alterations in orthopaedic and rheumatologic diseases
• Fatigue and pain in oncologic conditions
• Motor dysfunction in cardiopulmonary diseases

Manuscripts can be submitted now or up until the deadline. All papers will go through peer-review process. Accepted papers will be published in the journal (as soon as accepted) and meanwhile listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, reviews as well as short communications are preferred. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office to announce on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts will be thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. Please visit the Instruction for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) in this open access journal is 2200 USD. Submitted manuscripts should be well formatted in good English.
