Neural plasticity is the ability of the nervous system to modify its structure and function in response to experience or stimuli. Therefore, the process is considered essential for normal development and aging, as well as for the adaptation to changing environments or pathological insults. Investigating the functional consequences and the mechanisms behind neural plasticity is, thus, crucial to understand how learning and memory work. In addition, it provides insights into neurodegenerative diseases and the recovery process after injury.
In this context, the aim of the IBRO Neuroscience Reports Special Issue on Neural Plasticity in Health and Disease is to highlight the findings and advancements on this important topic. The journal welcomes a variety of contributions, including original research articles and review articles related to all aspects of neural plasticity in health and disease, as listed below:
1. Neural plasticity and memory
2. Neural plasticity in development or aging
3. Neural plasticity in rehabilitation from injury
4. Neural plasticity and neurodegenerative diseases
5. Neural plasticity in neuropsychiatric disorders
6. New functional significance or mechanism of neural plasticity
