    Special Issue on Developmental Neuroscience


    The field of neural development draws on both neuroscience and developmental biology to describe and provide insight into the ular and molecular mechanisms. Neuroanatomists studied cellular development in their favorite brain region by annotating static Golgi preparations at different time points. Cell biologists examined how growth cones grow in tissue culture, probed how cells survived, and discovered nerve growth factor with clever embryological, culture, and biochemical methods, and tested the concept of specificity. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of developmental neuroscience.


    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore developmental neuroscience. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Brain developments
    • Neural induction
    • Patterning of the nervous system
    • Neurogenesis
    • Neuronal migration
    • Neurotrophic factors
    • Synapse formation and synapse elimination


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue Developmental Neuroscience” should be selected during your submission.
