About this Research Topic
The field of veterinary clinical and experimental neurology has grown considerably in the past decade to encompass significant advances in the fields of neurobehavior, neurosurgery, neuropathology, and infectious disease. Recent research has begun to unravel the pathogenesis of intracranial cancer in the dog, the pathogenesis of various encephalitides, including infectious and non-infectious diseases, and many neurodegenerative conditions including lysosomal storage diseases and inherited central and peripheral nervous system disorders. However, many questions remain unanswered as it relates to disease prevalence, pathogenesis, etiology, surgical and medical treatment, and prognosis.
We invite you to submit your research on topics that pertain to pathogenesis and pathology of canine neurologic disease, such as metabolic disease (including storage diseases), neuroinflammatory diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, traumatic brain injury, peripheral nervous system diseases, and developmental disease. This Topic is cross-referenced in the section of Neurology and Neurosurgery in Frontiers in Veterinary Science and complements a concurrently open Research Topic on canine spinal cord injury.
Keywords: Epilepsy, Cancer, Neurodegeneration, Behavior, Neuroinflammation
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.
