Vol. 3 No. 5 (2021): Special Issue on "Integrated Neural Technologies: Solutions Beyond Tomorrow"
Submission: 25 August 2020 - 31 March 2021
Review, Revision, Acceptance: Before 30 June 2021
Neuroscience is an exciting area in which, at a fast rate, revolutionary advances materialize. The emergence of neuro-technologies is interdisciplinary. It supports the amalgamation of neurobiology and atomic, nano- and micro-sciences as a fascinating path to significant developments in the neuroscience study. It poses a scientific foundation for potential therapeutic strategies.
Researchers may investigate brain function in people with diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy using technological devices, including MRI scanner and 3-D Computed Tomography. They can do experiments using samples of cells and tissues. The results could contribute to the development of new drugs. Research is being undertaken to use technologies to offer people with prosthetics a sensory sensation, and neurostimulation also helped paralyze people move. Machines can aid the functioning of the human brain in this way. Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) or Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) can track the patient’s psychological state towards therapy and behavioral modification.
In this special issue, we are pleased to welcome original submission topics related to technologies in neuroscience, either a comprehensive or extensive review or original research articles to a wide variety of issues. We encourage the papers involving studies showing the result of such interdisciplinary integration or potential alliances. Submissions are focusing on but are not limited to the following topics:
* Neuroimaging development
* Development of new devices used in the neuroscience field, e.g., DBS, virtual brain
* Current molecular or pharmacological therapies or approaches like nanomaterials and nanotechnology that aim at treating brain related disorders, e.g., PD, AD, Epilepsy, Schizophrenia
* Use of Artificial Intelligence in the investigation of brain functioning
* Biological neuroprosthetics and Brain-Machine Interface"Models" - include organoids / stem cell / tissue engineering
