Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In this session we are going to deal with the importance of MEG brain measurements in patients with CNS disorders using SQUID technologies. This is because the use of the MEG shows significant brain activity often in the absence of EEG abnormalities. In addition the MEG uses extctracranial magnetic field, there is not interference with tissues and fluids, is sensitive to tangetially oriented dipoles, has maximal signal in cortical sulci and can be localized to about 2-3 mm compared to the EEG which the localization is about 20 mm.

In this method we are able to localize brain activity in patients with different brain disorders for example epilepsy, parkinson, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer,autism and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

Thus, the goal of this important session is to show different mapping techniques in order to help analyze the MEG recording measurements for diagnostic purposes.

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.
