Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the past and actually, many studies have been focus in neuronal cells but they have not given enough interest to glial cells and their development. In the last decade the study of these cells has increased and their morphology, the changes during development, their role in neurodegeneration, the damage produced by drugs and in the brain development are now a great field of study in science. Furthermore, expression of the receptors on the surface conditioner axonal neuronal direction and cell adhesion, jogging many roles in brain function. Also, the susceptibility of different brain regions to the disease that are linked to the overstimulation of microglia and astrocytes, could be linked to the immune system during aging as well as development brain. On the other hand, a diminution in glia phagocytosis has related to many diseases, such as AD, ALS, cancer, developmental disorders, neurodegeneration, pain related disorders and destruction of the BBB. This issue will focus in the mechanisms of action of glial cells and their role during aging and development diseases.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at https://jour.ipublishment.com/imr/access/login by registering and logging into 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 double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Integrative Neuroscience is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by IMR Press.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is $1500. We normally offer a discount greater than 30% (APC: $1050) to all contributors invited by the Editor-in-Chief, Guest Editor (GE) and Editorial board member. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
