Cytokines and neuroinflammation – Neuronal Signaling themed collection
Open for submissions
The nervous and immune systems are closely intertwined with interactions occurring at a number of different levels. Neuroinflammation is an inflammatory response within the central nervous system. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the role of the immune system and neuroinflammation in the development of the nervous system, in the response to stress, and in the pathophysiology of neurological and psychiatric disorders. It has also become a target of interest for therapeutic intervention in such disorders. Recent findings also suggest that there is significant variation in such disorders depending on age, sex and environmental factors.
This themed collection in Neuronal Signaling aims to share recent advances in cytokine signalling and effects in the nervous system that can enhance our understanding of neuronal disorders, as well as their prevention and treatment. We invite submission of original research articles, reviews and perspective pieces on this topic for publication in this themed collection.
Areas of interest include but are not limited to cytokine signalling in or regulation of the HPA axis and stress, neuronal and synaptic plasticity, neurogenesis, neurodegeneration, pain and brain disorders using in vitro approaches, in vivo animal models and/or clinical samples.
We look forward to receiving your excellent submissions and please do not hesitate to contact the Editorial Office for any additional information.
This Neuronal Signaling themed collection, will be Guest edited by:
Dr Declan McKernan, University of Galway
Dr Olivia O’Leary, University College Cork
