Neuroscience Research Notes
SPECIAL ISSUES ON “MULTIDISCIPLINARY BRAIN SCIENCE RESEARCH IN MONGOLIA & CENTRAL ASIA“
ABOUT THE SPECIAL ISSUE
Research in Mongolia aims to determine the epidemiology, clinical characteristics, diagnostics, and treatment of brain-related disorders in the general population from the fundamental and applied basis of neuroscience. However, due to socioeconomic limitations to basic research in Mongolia, recent studies in neuroscience were primarily clinically oriented.
The Special Issue aims to publish recent findings of studies on brain-related disorders. The variety of those techniques may extend from simple methods such as blood tests and neurophysiological examinations to more advanced innovative methods such as functional MRI and non-invasive brain stimulation techniques. Examples include validated self-report instruments for disease screening and heart rate variability for testing autonomic nervous functions.
Moreover, it is imperative to investigate the brain-related disorders concerning the particular effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on mental health and the quality of life of the general population worldwide. The impact of the pandemic on vulnerable individuals such as patients with diabetes, major depressive disorders with suicidal thoughts, or neurodegenerative diseases is to be determined, as well as is expected an increased prevalence of mental disorders including stress-related, alcohol use, depressive, and anxiety disorders during the pandemic.
We welcome original research articles, reviews, technical notes, case reports, and hypothetical papers on the following specialities:
- Cellular and molecular neuroscience
- Genomics, proteomics and metabolomics
- Clinical neuroscience
- Neuroimaging studies
- Psychosomatic medicine
- Population psychology
