The neurological landscape is changing rapidly. From the technological perspective, advanced molecular approaches and imaging modalities have greatly increased our understanding of neurological disease, with enhanced prospects for effective treatments in common but very serious disorders such as stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and Parkinsons disease. Nevertheless, at the same time, the healthcare community is increasingly challenged by the rise in neurodegenerative diseases consequent upon demographic changes in developed countries. As our increased capabilities collide with the increased demands in neurology, Future Neurology (ISSN: 1479-6708) provides a forum to address most important challenges and advances, highlighting their relevance in the clinical setting. Future Neurology delivers this essential information in concise, at-a-glance article formats - vital in delivering information to an increasingly time-constrained community. Coverage includes: Advanced computer and software systems for modeling and directing therapy; Adverse events and drug safety; Biological processes involved in neurological dysfunction and how new understanding will impact treatment; Disease risk assessment; Clinical implications and applications for new biomarkers; Genetic contributions to neurological disorders such as epilepsy and autism; Impact of molecular genetics on prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment; Integration of diagnostic and therapeutic approaches; Neuropsychiatric disorders and impact of pharmacogenomics and personalized therapies; New therapeutic targets; Pharmacoeconomics and costbenefit issues in neurology; Potential applications of stem cells and gene therapy in neurodegenerative diseases; Profiles of new neurotherapeutic agents; Selective and personalized approaches. Advances in neurology promise effective treatments for diseases that have long been regarded as intractable. As the literature around these therapeutic needs and advances proliferates, Future Neurology provides authoritative commentary and analysis to draw attention rapidly, clearly and concisely to the key scientific and clinical issues that confront us in a new era of healthcare.
