Special Issue "Bioactive Natural Compounds for Therapeutic and Nutraceutical Applications in Neurodegeneration"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
The term neurodegeneration indicates a pathological condition primarily affecting neurons. In this regard, neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by the progressive functional loss of neurons, causing cognitive impairment and motor neuronal disability. Although several multifactorial causes are involved, nutrition plays an essential role in the pathogenesis and evolution of these brain disorders. The brain is a metabolically active organ, and it is widely accepted that dietary compounds play a key role in the prevention of neurodegenerative disorders. The general objective of this Special Issue is to collect and disseminate the most recent and innovative findings concerning the mechanisms of action of nutritional compounds with possible preventative roles against neurodegenerative and neurological conditions. This is also a good opportunity for scientists in the field to show their recent works, both to other researchers in the field and to a wider audience of readers. We encourage the submission of original research articles, reviews, as well as translational and clinical findings in the field of neurodegeneration. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to following keywords:
