About the Journal
The European Journal of Histochemistry has been an influential cytology journal for over 60 years, publishing research articles on functional cytology and histology in animals and plants. The European Journal of Histochemistry offers original research articles investigating on structural and molecular components performed by histochemical and immunohistochemical methods, at light and electron microscopy, cytometry and imaging techniques.
Areas of particular interest include cell differentiation, senescence and death, and cell-cell interactions in normal and pathological tissues; attention is also given to articles on newly developed or originally applied histochemical and microscopical techniques.
Since its foundation in 1954, the European Journal of Histochemistry is the official organ of the Italian Society of Histochemistry.
The Proceedings of the 66th Congress of the GEI-Italian Society of Development and Cell Biology (GEI-SIBSC) are available here
The Special Collection "Advances in neuromorphology in health and disease" is open
Neuroscience is constantly expanding, and experiments are performed thanks to a wide variety of techniques starting from the cellular and animal level, to the human level. All the different approaches are based on the consolidated awareness that, in the nervous system, the structural organization is entirely and intimately linked to function. This is one of the reasons why neuromorphology is a continuously developing field where new techniques are developed to better explore the cellular organization and anatomical structure of the nervous system, in the attempt to elucidate their relation with functions in health and disease.
The focus of this special issue is to illustrate the current progress on new approaches to the study of the central and peripheral nervous system and the physio-pathological correlations therein.
Contributions may range from novel microscopical and histochemical methods to the application of established techniques in neuroscience and in animal or cellular models of neurological diseases, including studies investigating the correlation of environment and plasticity of neural circuits.
