    Special Issue on Research on Brain Development

    The early years of a child’s life are very important for later health and development. One of the main reasons is how fast the brain grows starting before birth and continuing into early childhood. Although the brain continues to develop and change into adulthood, the first 8 years can build a foundation for future learning, health and life success. 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 the area of brain development.

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

    • Proper nutrition starting in pregnancy
    • Brain development in the embryonic and early fetal periods
    • The first step in brain development: differentiation of the neural progenitor cells
    • The formation of the neural tube: the first brain structure
    • Neural patterning in the embryonic period
    • Regressive events in prenatal brain development
    • Brain development in the postnatal period

    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 notice that the Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue - Research on Brain Development” should be chosen during your submission.
