About this Research Topic
Cell migration is an essential step in a wide range of cellular events and diseases. In the developing cerebral cortex, for example, the completion of neuronal migration is an essential step for establishing a proper neuronal network. Defects in neuronal migration naturally result in neurodevelopmental disorders. Recent studies have shown that cell migration is a critical step in different types of neurological diseases, particularly diseases accompanied by neuroinflammation.
In this Research Topic researchers are welcome to submit original research and review articles. We are interested in any and all topics about cell migration of cell types including neurons, astrocytes, immune cells, etc. in the development of the nervous system; where defects can result in many types of neurological and neurodevelopmental disorders. We also welcome original research and review articles analyzing or discussing the cell migration step of these cells, which is an essential step in pathogenesis and treatment of neurological disorders such as neurodegenerative diseases and spinal cord injury.
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.
