About this Research Topic
Brain function is under metabolic control, which in turn determines the equilibrium of homeostatic systems that affect neuronal and glial networks on the molecular, cellular, and systems levels. We encourage authors to submit articles which will feature molecules, ions, neuromodulators and neurotransmitters involved in regulating neuronal excitability; will cover homeostatic control mechanisms on the cellular and systems level; will feature therapeutic mechanisms tailored to restore homeostatic function; and will finally feature neurological diseases and novel treatment approaches that are based on metabolic and homeostatic interventions. Together, the collection of articles should provide a comprehensive overview of novel strategies to restore brain function in neurology, should highlight limitations of conventional pharmacological approaches, and may suggest that restoration of molecular and biochemical networks could lead to a new era of therapeutic opportunities.
