The section covers all aspects of neuromuscular disorders and peripheral neuropathies in childhood and adult life, and is aimed at a wide range of clinicians, pathologists, neurophysiologists, clinical and basic scientists with an interest in this field.
*For the submission of a Case Report please, send the manuscript draft to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
This section aims to facilitate progress in understanding the molecular genetics/correlates, pathogenesis, diagnosis, pharmacology, treatment, and management of acquired and inherited neuromuscular disorders and peripheral neuropathies in childhood and adult life. Topics encompass neuronopathies (ALS and related disorders, spinal muscle atrophy), peripheral neuropathies inherited, acquired or toxic, neuromuscular junction disorders (Myasthenia Gravis, congenital myasthenic syndromes, myasthenic syndromes), muscle diseases (muscular dystrophies, myotonic syndromes, muscle channelopathies, congenital myopathies, metabolic and inflammatory myopathies, toxic myopathies). The Specialty Chief Editor welcomes original articles from all areas of the field:
- clinical aspects: challenging individual cases, new clinical entities, new treatment and management, rehabilitation
- original research with new diagnostic techniques, including neurophysiological studies, neuropathological studies, muscle biopsy studies, neuroimaging, and molecular biology and genetic studies
- translational studies from animal models or cell biology relevant to human diseases.
The section is aimed at a wide range of clinicians, pathologists, neurophysiologists, clinical and basic scientists with an interest in the field of neuromuscular disorders and peripheral neuropathies.
