Special Issue Introduction

Neuroinflammation, glial cell (microglia and astrocytes) activation, was literately well reported to contribute to the pathology of a variety of neurodegenerative diseases and brain injuries that cause disability and death. Furthermore, inflammatory changes may occur prior to symptoms providing a potential biomarker of pre-symptomatic disease. Glial cells also play an important role in mediating the immune response in central nervous system.

This special issue, “The Impact of Neuroinflammation on Health”, has a broad research scope on a variety of different central nervous disorders. You are invited to submit research and review articles related to the following potential topics, or any research communications in conjunction with acute or chronic neuroinflammation:

*Biomarkers for neuroinflammation
*Neuroinflammation and disease progression
*Drugs targeting neuroinflammation
*Acute and chronic activation astrocyte/microglia in brain injuries
*Multiple imaging modalities of neuroinflammation
*Animal models of neuroinflammation
*Targeted therapy of neuroinflammation
*Epigenetics of glia
*Subpopulations of astrocytes/microglia
*Pain and neuroinflammation
*Longitudinal and cross-sectional analyses of neuroinflammation
*Interaction of astrocytes/microglia with neurons
*Single cell analyses of astrocytes/microglia


Neuroinflammation, glial cell, neurodegenerative diseases, brain injuries, biomarker, central nervous system, astrocyte, microglia, targeted therapy
