Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to participate in this Special Issue on “Understanding the mechanisms of rehabilitation approaches for Neurological conditions -Volume II.” We welcome manuscripts that describe multidisciplinary approaches for achieving functional recovery from neurological conditions and that have the potential to improve quality of life. Active researchers in the fields of physical and neural rehabilitation are strongly encouraged to submit their work, particularly if it is focused on non-pharmacological/conservative modes of treatment to optimize the patient’s rehabilitation and improve their quality of life. 

This Special Issue will concentrate on two key aspects:

1. Innovative use of various biomedical signals such as the electroencephalogram (EEG), electromyogram (EMG), and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to measure and understand the basic mechanism of rehabilitation approaches/techniques. These should use novel signal processing methods in the short-term, or cross-sectional study designs.

2. Wearable sensors to measure longitudinal data based on recent technological advances in energy-efficient and interconnected wireless systems. These offer unique solutions for non-invasive, ubiquitous, and continuous healthcare monitoring in the field of neurological rehabilitation.

Original papers that describe new research on any of the themes mentioned above are welcome. We look forward to your participation in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted via our online editorial system at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to start your submission. 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.
