OBM Neurobiology is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. By design, the scope of OBM Neurobiology is broad, so as to reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the field of Neurobiology that interfaces biology with the fundamental and clinical neurosciences. As such, OBM Neurobiology embraces rigorous multidisciplinary investigations into the form and function of neurons and glia that make up the nervous system, either individually or in ensemble, in health or disease. OBM Neurobiology welcomes original contributions that employ a combination of molecular, cellular, systems and behavioral approaches to report novel neuroanatomical, neuropharmacological, neurophysiological and neurobehavioral findings related to the following aspects of the nervous system: Signal Transduction and Neurotransmission; Neural Circuits and Systems Neurobiology; Nervous System Development and Aging; Neurobiology of Nervous System Diseases (e.g., Developmental Brain Disorders; Neurodegenerative Disorders).
OBM Neurobiology publishes research articles, technical reports and invited topical reviews. Although the OBM Neurobiology Editorial Board encourages authors to be succinct, there is no restriction on the length of the papers. Authors should present their results in as much detail as possible, as reviewers are encouraged to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.
Archiving: full-text archived in CLOCKSS.
Rapid publication: manuscripts are undertaken in 7 days from acceptance to publication (average values for papers published in this journal in the first half of 2019, 1-2 days of FREE language polishing time is also included in this period).

About This Topic
Celiac disease (CD) has been associated several decades ago, with several neurologic disorders including the cerebellar ataxia, the multiple peripheral neuropathy, some forms of epilepsy and of depression. Recent studies have shown that a great variety of nurologic syndromes and diseases may be associated not only with CD, but also with a minor form of presentation of gluten intolerance known as “Non-celiac gluten sensitivity” (NCGS) that shows a similar clinical manifestations, but the serologic, genetic and histologic markers characteristic of CD, may be absent. The list of neurologic diseases related to CD and also to NCGS has been grown in the last years including the migraines, chorea, mononeuritis, Guillain-Barre-like síndrome, Tourette´s syndrome and others…
It remains unclear if the pathogenesis of the great part of these neurologic diseases must be related directly to the gluten toxicity or through some immonologic mechanisms. But in a great part of clinical neurologic cases, without an efficient therapy, a trial of a gluten-free diet (GFD) during at least one year merits to be proved.
In this special edition, we invite submissions that show case new, inventive and original approaches to longstanding issues in CD and NCGS assessment, treatment and research. Original research reports, review articles, communications, and perspectives are welcome in all areas pertinent to this topic. All accepted papers will be published free of charge.
Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://www.lidsen.com/account-login by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. Guidelines for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts are available on the Instructions for Authors page. OBM Neurobiology is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by LIDSEN. Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript.
