Aging is defined as a progressive time‐related accumulation of changes involved in the increased susceptibility to disease and death. The brain seems to be particularly sensitive to the aging process since the appearance of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Vascular Dementia and many others, are exponential with the increasing age. There has been extensive research into these common diseases with a focus on establishing the etiology and developing therapies for their treatment and, most important, their prevention.
This Special Issue on “Physiological or pathological molecular alteration in brain aging” aims to cover all aspects of brain studies and health promotion and prevention, such as studies on mitochondrial dysfunction, autophagy, oxidative stress and inflammation associated with brain disorders.
In addition, we also welcome studies on pharmacological or phytochemical or nutraceutical effects of compounds that are able to counteract the impact of the age in the brain.
Research articles collecting data from both in vitro and in vivo investigations are appreciated, as are full reviews, including news in the field of the current understanding of molecular mechanisms involved in the brain during aging.

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.
