Special Issue "Neural Signaling, Neuromodulation and Plasticity"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2021.
Neurons are capable of sensing and responding to changes in their microenvironments via several receptors and channels. These highly diverse receptors and channels represent the dynamics of neuronal development and plasticity, which involve multiple highly complex, interactive, and dynamic signaling pathways.
To further understand the underlying complex molecular and cellular mechanisms behind neural signaling pathways and plasticity, in this Special Issue we aim to focus on:
1) The computational modeling of neural signaling and pathways;
2) Spatial synaptic modeling;
3) The interaction between spatial and temporal mapping and synaptic plasticity;
4) The influence of individual signaling pathways on the regulation of neural stem cells.

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.
