Neuroscience is the archetypal multidisciplinary science encompassing a variety of fields that share the common goal of attempting to provide a complete understanding of the structure and function of the central nervous system. A series of advances in molecular, developmental and cognitive neuroscience, stimulated by the advent of powerful new experimental techniques and theoretical approaches, have now rendered some of the most enduring neurobiological questions increasingly tractable.
Aim and Scope
Annals of Behavioral Neuroscience publishes articles on the function of the nervous system and the disordered human behavior. All levels of function are included, from the membrane and cell to systems and behavior. Topics include Molecular neurobiology, Membrane physiology, Developmental neurobiology, Functional neuroanatomy, Cell culture and slice preparations, Neurochemistry, Neuropharmacology, Systems electrophysiology, Imaging and mapping techniques, Neuroethology, Sensory physiology, Sensory ecology, Physiological aspects of various diseases, Physiological basis of behavior, Hormonal control of behavior, Communication, Orientation, Locomotion, Neuroeducation, Functional neuroanatomy and Behavioral analysis. This explosion of knowledge has in turn created a need for new tools to efficiently organize and communicate this information.
The journal will publish original, significant review articles, case reports and short descriptions dealing with all aspects of neuroscience, where the relationship to the study of psychological processes and behavior is clearly established. Conversely, the journal will also publish articles whose primary focus deals with psychological processes and behavior, and which have relevance to one or more aspects of neuroscience.
