Neuro Central Spotlights

Neuro Central Spotlights draw together top content on a hot topic in the neuro world over several weeks. From journal articles, news, and exclusive interviews and opinion pieces, Spotlights take an in-depth exploration of a current topic in neurology and neuroscience. Take a look at our current and previous Spotlights below.


The field of neuromodulation – the alteration of nerve activity via electrical or pharmaceutical agents delivered directly to a target area – has seen enormous growth in recent years. Neuromodulatory therapies including deep brain stimulation, intrathecal drug delivery and spinal cord stimulation are being used increasingly to treat a vast array of neurological diseases and symptoms, including Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and chronic pain.

With such a broad therapeutic scope, plus significant leaps being made rapidly in biotechnology, neuromodulation is set to be an area of continuing major growth in coming years. So, we wanted to delve deeper into this exciting field, exploring clinical uses, challenges and future directions through a range of interviews, journal articles and expert opinions.

With the field of neuroimmunology expanding year on year, we wanted to take a deeper look at some of the recent milestones in this area and explore where the field could go next. Over this 2-month Spotlight, we’ll bring together neuroimmunology news, articles from our partnered journals as well as MEDLINE-indexed journal Immunotherapy, plus exclusive interviews and opinions from leaders in the field. We’ll look at the history of neuroimmunology, explore new uses for the immune system in targeting nervous system cancers, multiple sclerosis and neurodegenerative disease, and look ahead at the future of this ever-expanding field.
