Neurotrauma is generally regarded as a public health problem that remains a leading cause of disabilities and death worldwide, and the costs to communities in terms of suffering and economics are enormous. Neurotrauma may be in the form of traumatic brain injury (TBI) or traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI), or others, all of which are a heterogeneous group of pathologic disorders. The common causes of neurotrauma are road traffic accidents, falls and violence. Even current neurorestorative strategies, including cell therapy, neuromodulation and neurorestorative surgery, can restore patients with neurotrauma to some degree of neurological functions;1–6 there exists an urgent demand to find more effective methods for neurotrauma to better restore damaged or lost neurological functions and/or structures. The objective of this thematic series is to report the latest advances in neurotrauma to motivate clinicians and scientists to know more and find more effectively neurorestorative methods for neurotrauma. A brief summary of three papers in the thematic series is given in the following sections.
