The clinical phenomenology of Movement Disorders is derived from the interactions of a number of brain regions aimed at providing motor control under different functional states, which this specialty accepts submissions to further explore.
*For the submission of a Case Report please, send the manuscript draft to email@example.com for pre-evaluation. Any Case Reports submitted without a previous enquiry might experience delays, as they will be sent for assessment prior to peer review.
Movement Disorders is a fast-growing field of scientific and clinical knowledge that receives contributions from neuroscientists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, neuropediatricians and psychologists. Movement disorders are developing as a truly interdisciplinary area: the clinical phenomenology derives from the interactions of a number of brain regions aimed at providing motor control under different functional states.
The main focus of Movement Disorders is on normal and abnormal functioning of the motor system and on the possibilities to treat motor dysfunctions. While this Specialty Section is primarily centered on clinical studies, basic research with relevant translational value is also welcome. We encourage submissions that address key questions related to the etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of movement disorders, either akinetic syndromes, such as Parkinson’s disease and other Parkinsonian conditions, or hyperkinetic syndromes, such as dystonia, tics, choreas and tremors. Submissions that address interdisciplinary issues are also strongly encouraged. We plan to make Movement Disorders a reference forum for the fast publication of research data.
Please, note only Case Reports including a video demonstration will be considered by this section.
