SPECIAL ISSUE ON "RECENT ADVANCES IN MODELING CELLS, CELLULAR 
COMPARTMENTS AND SIGNALING NETWORKS AS A TOOL TO UNDERSTAND THE NERVOUS 
SYSTEM"


AIMS AND SCOPE:

In the last two decades, the progress in molecular biology and 
associated areas promoted a large accumulation of structural and 
molecular data about the nervous system. Almost simultaneously with 
that, fields such as Computational Neuroscience and Systems Biology have 
emerged with the aim to obtain a system-level understanding about the 
nervous systems through the development of computational models based on 
experimental data. Today, both fields are consolidated areas of research 
and have given valuable contributions to our knowledge of processes such 
as electrical integration, calcium dynamics, synaptic plasticity, 
sensory transduction, pathologies, among many others. In this special 
volume, we want to highlight some of the recent contributions of both 
computational neuroscience and systems biology to Neuroscience 
especially through the development and analysis of computational models 
of cells, cellular compartments and signaling networks. These types of 
models are powerful tools to investigate the physiological and molecular 
dynamics of neurons with a large range of spatial and temporal 
resolutions. Therefore, in this special volume, our intent is to select 
bleeding edge contributions focused on the gather works that will cover 
simulations of signaling networks and signal transduction solved 
deterministically or stochastically; the interaction between signaling 
networks and the regulation of ionic channels through covalent 
modifications such as phosphorylation; the impact of neuronal geometries 
on signaling networks and on cellular electrical integration. Thus, we 
have the expectation that this special volume will be of interest to 
both the people working in the fields on Computational Neuroscience and 
Systems Biology, and to experimental biophysicists that will have the 
opportunity to get an overall view of the main topics that have been 
investigated with computational models of cells and signaling networks.


TOPICS OF INTEREST include (but are not limited to):

• Synaptic Plasticity
• Sensory Transduction
• Calcium Dynamics
• Electrical Integration
• Stochastic Processes
• Signaling pathways in 3D compartments
• Pathological Processes
• Software/Algorithms
