Abstract Submission Deadline 16 March 2023
Manuscript Submission Deadline 17 July 2023

Bioelectronic Medicine is an emerging field that brings together multidisciplinary approaches with a common goal: the design of therapeutic treatments by the electrical modulation of the nervous system. While this field promises to solve a plethora of diseases by the use of engineered technology in materials and electronic devices, the contribution of purely neuroscientists, and specifically women in Neuroscience remain underrepresented. The basis of Bioelectronic Medicine relies on the modification of the physiology of the nervous system and understanding its fundamental cellular and molecular mechanisms become indispensable in order to achieve precise treatments. The Neuroscience community will propel the advances in Bioelectronic Medicine by providing key knowledge for the modulation of the nervous system at the cellular, molecular and systemic levels. Thus this research topic is a call to Neuroscientists to be part of the front workforce in Bioelectronic Medicine and provide fundamental mechanisms that help to understand and design new treatments.

Bioelectronic Medicine is an emerging field that brings together multidisciplinary approaches, including Bioengineering, Electronics, Material science, Physics, Computer science, Medicine and Neuroscience, among others. A common goal is the design of therapeutic treatments by the electrical modulation of the nervous system. Yet, a strategy is needed that allows interfield research that also promotes the participation of underrepresented groups. In the field of Neuroscience, there are highly successful women that have tackled important questions with transcendental impact. Yet, female neuroscientists are still underrepresented in Neurosciences and even more in Biomedical fields underlying Bioelectronic Medicine. Despite all the inclusive movements around the globe, we are far from equilibrating underrepresented populations and a gender bias is clear. This research topic collection is open to any gender, but encourages women in Neuroscience to bring knowledge to propel the progress of Bioelectronic Medicine, and will open a new space for interaction among fields with the aim of propelling research to develop new therapies.

This research topic aims to promote the participation of neuroscientists as part of the multidisciplinary workforce to advance Bioelectronic Medicine. Contributions of all genders are welcome, but we strongly encourage the participation of women in Neuroscience at all stages and especially young women in the early career stage. This research collection will welcome the following contents with a focus or implication in Bioelectronic Medicine:

- Cellular and molecular basis of neurotransmission

- Biophysics of the membrane and neuromodulation

- Genetical modifications of neural circuits by neuromodulation

- Electrical properties of the somatic and autonomic nervous system

- Neurotransmitter switching mechanisms in neuromodulatory plasticity

- Neural interfaces, effect in the nervous system

- The glial cells as a fundamental element for neurotransmission

- Neuronal circuits in health and disease

- Somatic and Autonomic neurophysiology

- Neurophysiology of systems in neuromodulation

- Biological models for neuromodulation

Keywords: Bioelectronic medicine, Neuromodulation, Neuronal networks, Woman in Bioengineering, Woman in Neuroscience, Plasticity, Closed-loop systems, Neuroimmune, Mollecular Neuroscience, Neural Interfaces
