Special Issue Introduction
Ferroptosis is a non-apoptotic, iron-dependent, oxidative cell death that is characterized by glutathione consumption and lipid peroxides accumulation. In recent years, ferroptosis has been proved to be closely related to neurological diseases, including neurodegeneration, stroke, and brain trauma. To elucidate the exact mechanism by which ferroptosis is involved in the pathogenesis of neurological diseases, Ageing and Neurodegenerative Diseases decided to launch this call to advance basic and clinical research on the broad link between ferroptosis and neurological diseases. We aim to provide a platform for global neuroscientists to share their outstanding research and exchange their inspiring ideas. Original research papers, reviews, perspectives, and views & comments are all welcomed.
We welcome studies on ferroptosis in neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, traumatic brain injury, and stroke. We are also interested in the general studies of ferroptosis in neuronal systems, and its interactions with other cell death mechanisms.
