Fluids and Barriers of the CNS is calling for submissions to our Collection on Genetic Aspects of Hydrocephalus.

About the collection

This new Collection from Fluids and Barriers of the CNS seeks to publish new research and reviews on genetic aspects of hydrocephalus. That includes both human genetic studies seeking to identify new genetic causes of hydrocephalus and animal studies using genetic manipulations to provide insight into the role of specific proteins/pathways in regulating CSF dynamics and hydrocephalus development. Studies on the role of epigenetics in hydrocephalus are also most welcome.

  1. Hydrocephalus (HC) is a heterogenous disease characterized by alterations in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dynamics that may cause increased intracranial pressure. HC is a component of a wide array of genetic synd...

Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have read our submission guidelines. Articles for this Collection should be submitted via our submission system, Snapp. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a Collection, please select "Genetic Aspects of Hydrocephalus" from the dropdown menu.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.

The Guest Editors have no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Guest Editors have competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
