Current Opinion in Neurology was launched in 1988. It is one of a successful series of review journals whose unique format is designed to provide a systematic and critical assessment of the literature as presented in the many primary journals. The field of neurology is divided into 14 sections that are reviewed once a year. Each section is assigned a Section Editor, a leading authority in the area, who identifies the most important topics at that time. Here we are pleased to introduce the Journal's Section Editors for this issue.

Bruce T. Volpe

Bruce T. Volpe obtained his medical degree from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, USA, and trained in medicine at the University of Chicago and Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, USA, and then trained in neurology at Cornell University Medical School, USA. He is an emeritus Professor of Neurology and Neuroscience at Cornell, and he is now a Professor of Molecular Medicine at the Zucker School of Medicine / Hofstra University / Northwell Health, USA.

He has explored the cognition of patients with corpus callosum section for epilepsy control, developed behavioral analysis of animals exposed to stroke, and worked to develop the first interactive robotic devices to improve motor recovery after clinical stroke. He is now at the Feinstein Institute where he is exploring the quantitative histopathology of the brain after injury with autoantibodies. These projects with immunologists explore mechanisms of neurotoxicity of antibodies and other toxic molecules that are found in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder, autism, and survivors of overwhelming sepsis. The acute and chronic vulnerability of the hippocampal neurons and now other neurons in the hippocampal – entorhinal and amygdalar networks suggest new windows of therapeutic opportunity.
