The mission of Neurotrauma is to facilitate research that can improve the treatment and outcome of traumatic injuries to the nervous system; furthering key areas of research and welcoming specialised focuses that may have escaped general attention.
*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.
Traumatic injuries to the nervous system are a dominating cause of death in young individuals. Survivors may suffer from permanent disability and pain. The costs for the society are enormous. The mission of Neurotrauma is to facilitate research that can improve the treatment and outcome of neurotrauma.
Neurotrauma is a specialty section of Neurology that aims to publish significant clinical and basic research findings on all of aspects of traumatic injuries to the nervous system. Thus, we will welcome papers on 1) traumatic brain injuries (TBI); 2) spinal cord injury; and 3) peripheral nerve injury. Papers may concern a wide spectrum of aspects of neurotrauma, such as the critical care of TBI, molecular insights on important differences in injury mechanisms between the central and peripheral nervous systems, the interface between mild TBI and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), work on biomarkers for injury, the relation between genetics and outcome of trauma, or the relation between inflammation and cellular repair. Other important areas will be injury mechanisms that, for a long time, may have escaped general attention, such as blast induced TBI or sports neurology/concussions. We will also welcome reports on new experimental methods, such as relevant well-controlled trauma models that can be used to increase knowledge about trauma mechanisms and treatment, or to generate injury criteria of relevance for protection in road traffic accidents. Studies that create translational effects between basic and clinical research, or between neuroscience and biomechanics, will be highly appreciated.
