Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue invites papers (reviews or original research articles) focusing on the importance of the vasculature for the function of neurological structures including the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system. The articles can discuss the therapeutic modulation of angiogenesis in neural tissue healing or the aberrant vascular production, damage, or decay in disease. Works can review our historical understanding of vasculogenesis in the context of neurological diseases and present related current and potential future therapies, including ongoing clinical trials. Novel modulators of the process of vasculogenesis, signaling data, as well as meta-analyses are also welcome. In addition, studies on the local relationships between the vasculature and other cells, for example within neurovascular units, are of interest.
