About this Research Topic

Abstract Submission Deadline 06 January 2023
Manuscript Submission Deadline 10 March 2023

In 1932 Sir Charles Scott Sherrington and Prof. Edgar Douglas Adrian received the Nobel Prize Award in Physiology or Medicine for their groundbreaking work on the function of neurons. Their discoveries on the all-or-nothing law of neural response, and excitatory and inhibitory signal integration properties formed the foundations of contemporary neuroscience research.

This year, 2022, will mark the 90th Anniversary of one of the most notable Nobel Prize Awards in the field of Neuroscience presenting an opportunity to reflect on the progress made in our understanding of the basic mechanisms of neuron functioning and neural information processing. Frontiers in Neuroscience portfolio is proud to introduce the “90th Anniversary of the Sherrington and Adrian Nobel Prize” Research Topic series that will highlight state-of-the-art neuroscience research building on the foundational discoveries of Sir Charles Scott Sherrington and Prof. Edgar Douglas Adrian. The aim of this series is to spotlight current advances in the basic mechanisms of neuron function, action potential, signal integration, and transmission across the entire central nervous system to further our understanding of how the biological mechanisms and physiological properties on different organizational levels contribute to the global information processing.

This special edition Research Topic aims to highlight cutting-edge research progressing our understanding of dendritic signal integration. This collection intends to serve as a basis to define the current advances in the field but also to summarize challenges in the field, define future inquiries and evaluate current and novel methodologies.

This Research Topic is interested in, but by no means limited to:

• Spatiotemporal dynamics of signal integration at the dendrites
• Physiological and anatomical factors in dendritic signal integration
• Molecular transduction modulating factors
• Dendritic and soma activity correlation
• Calcium dynamics modulated at the dendrites
• Molecular mechanisms of dendritic receptors modulation

Keywords: dendrite, signal integration


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
