Special Issue "Neurogenetics in Neurology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
Laboratory of Neurogenetics, European Center for Brain Research (CERC), Scientific Institute for Research, Hospitalization and Healthcare (IRCCS) Santa Lucia Foundation, 00143 Rome, Italy
Interests: human genetics; neurology; neurogenetics; neurodegenerative diseases
Neurogenetic diseases are disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems caused by molecular defects in heritable material, usually DNA. An increased focus on neurogenetics in neurology is timely and critical. There is a relevant reason to hope for treatments and therapies in the coming years that will restore significant function to people affected by neurogenetic diseases. Thus, this Research Topic should include manuscripts that describe genotypes and phenotypes of the different forms of genetic diseases affecting the central and peripheral nervous system, increase our understanding of their pathogenesis, and articulate strategies to use this knowledge to deliver novel therapeutic tools. The overall aim is to offer a wide vision of our current knowledge in this topic and to underlie the future needs to develop therapies that reduce this unmet medical problem of our society.

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 papers will be 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
